This system is expected to find uses in various fields. But initially, Canon will market it to sectors such as industrial design, where it can speed up the product design and planning process.
“This application is intended for automotive design. In this space where the only real object is a seat, CAD data for a car that’s still being designed can be seen through the display. With this system, evaluations that would normally have to be done with mock-ups can be done using CG or virtual data. So, this system can help to reduce the cost of mock-ups.”
“Initially, this system will be used for design and production, so basically, we’ll be building it separately for each individual customer. The Canon products here are the head-mount display and the software for moving it, but Canon IT Solutions will also be adding value to the core products, in the form of solutions.”
