Northwestern University Transportation Center (NUTC) and the Center for the Commercialization of Innovative Transportation Technology (CCITT) are hosting the Fall 2019 Industry Technical Workshop—Virtual Reality in Transport Innovation—on November 12th at Northwestern’s Cahn Auditorium in Evanston, to showcase advances and opportunities in virtual, augmented and mixed reality (VR /AR/MR) technology for applications across the transportation sector.  

Well beyond VR’s presence in gaming and personal entertainment, private companies and government organizations are deploying VR/AR/MR technologies for product design, vehicle maintenance, manufacturing inspection, real estate exploration, construction planning, warehouse and delivery operations, and more—including showcasing potential transport experiences to new investors, users and consumers.

Join NUTC on November 12th for case study presentations, demonstrations and a panel discussion from VR/AR/MR experts in the transportation industry to learn more about this exciting tool for innovation.
