Recently, VR (Virtual Reality) has become very popular due to its tremendous potential for various applications such as entertainment, military, manufacturing, etc.
In particular, VR is emerging as an important and effective tool for various kinds of training purposes, which includes medical surgery, combat operation, disaster prevention, and manufacturing. To develop those special-purpose VR applications, we need appropriate means of delivering compelling sensations of the real world to the users and good analysis skills for real-world data as well.
In this talk, some of the high-end VR applications developed for industry training, more specifically to manufacturing, will be introduced as good examples of VR’s usefulness. Also, we will be discussing some of the human factor issues related to reducing VR sickness which are prevalent in VR applications.
