Jaguar is breaking into an arena that could greatly affect the industrial sector — virtual reality. According to CNN, virtual reality programs are becoming a pillar of design for industrial manufacturing and Jaguar is perfecting it with their cars. While designing the Jaguar Land Rover, designers spent a significant part of their time in the “cave” where they were able to virtually construct cars and designs. This innovation center allows Jaguar to experiment and push boundaries without ever having to build. And it is beginning to translate to factories.
By using a similar virtual technology, companies are able to test the efficiency and layout of their factories and industrial lines preemptively. Traditionally, companies would build their factories only to learn about small problems later, however, with virtual technology companies are able to test their designs before building in order to design the most efficient space.
