The IET are looking to explore the opportunities for Applied Visualisation, Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality but bringing together a volunteer led working group that operates across industry sectors. Following on from the success of the ‘Going Beyond Games’ Event at Savoy Place in April, the IET are looking to bring together relevant staff members with members of the pre-existing HVM Catapult Visualisation and VR Forum to begin scoping the opportunities in this area.
IET Sectors are working closely with the Innovate UK-funded High Value Manufacturing (HVM) Catapult Visualisation and VR (VVR) Forum to build a new Applied Visualisation Community at the IET.
The VVR Forum was established over 3 years ago by the four HVM Catapult centres with expertise in this area. Today, the VVR Forum has members from six of the seven HVM Catapult centres and has an industrial steering group which includes membership from Rolls-Royce, Jaguar Land Rover and BAE Systems. Recognising the huge opportunity for applied visualisation across sectors, the IET are looking to support the growth of the new online community.
Encouraging those working in the field of visualisation and VR to share their expertise and good practices, working with the VVR Forum will help to promote the use of advanced visualisation tools and techniques, in order to remain at the leading edge of this important and growing field.
Following an initial VVR Forum event in 2015 attended by over 80 invitees from academia, research organisations and industry, IET Sectors look forward to working together to build on previous success in preparation for a collaborative follow up event in January 2017.
We are looking to grow our online presence and would encourage IET members’ interested in this field to join the new online Applied Visualisation Community today!
For more information please sign up and join the online community, which will host all of the latest news, case studies and film content within the Applied Visualisation field. In addition, members of the VVR forum will be supporting the HVM Catapult at events such as The Advanced Engineering Show, and presenting at EuroVR, increasing the visibility of the breadth and depth of VVR activity in the UK on the European stage.
