Date: Wednesday, February 12

Time: 2:05pm - 3:00pm

Track: MD&M Conference: Product Development: Effective Strategies for Moving from Engineering to Production

Augmented reality (AR) is a new frontier for product development. It is particularly useful as a means for concept visualization and iterative refinement. By selectively mixing AR and physical prototypes, designers can conduct haptic evaluation alongside visual assessment. This presentation will discuss the use of AR alongside traditional industrial design / human factors techniques to accelerate product development. Topics covered include:

  • Top benefits of AR for product design
  • Streamlining product development and prototyping methods using AR
  • Incorporating a flexible prototyping process that utilizes AR and 3P printing
