Did you know that the Volkswagen Group already has a clear plan for what cars will look like and operate after 2030?
How does the Volkswagen Group visualize vehicles after 2030?
What will the vehicles of the future look like?
How will drivers and passengers communicate with them?
How will autonomous management become a reality?
These are some of the many questions answered by a group of engineers, designers, scientists and futurists at the Volkswagen Group of America's Innovation Center California (ICC) in Silicon Valley.
Their job is to predict what the world will look like after 2030. Predicting the distant future helps the carmaker better understand and identify the needs of its customers within its global family of brands, including Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini and Volkswagen.
The ICC does not use a crystal ball to know the future. Uses Unity. With knowledge and capabilities of the program, including film and animation, software engineering, VR development and design.
The Unity ICC developer group extends the software to its full potential to address a variety of issues, including:
- Budoucí design interiéru a exteriéru a způsob cesty zákazníka po roce 2030.
- Návrh rozhraní člověk-stroj (HMI), včetně 3D uživatelských rozhraní (UI).
- Generation of synthetic data for machine-driven products.
Compared to traditional visualization methods in the automotive industry, the whole process has been shortened to about half the time.
VR and AR interactivity brings together engineers from all industries who work on prototypes together and online.
