    [MWC 2018] We Tested the New HTC Vive VR Headset

    / /

    HTC Vive unveiled its new VR Headset at Mobile World Congress on Monday. Vive Pro upgrades the VR experience to better respond to industry needs. The improvements include better sound quality, a wireless module and improved resolution. Vive Pro also features a tracking system that allows a 10 m x 10 m room-scale tracking space that will directly benefit the automotive industry for car design.

    Vive Pro also promises to revolutionize the training of industry operators by enabling the simulation of production processes inside a virtual factory before it is physically built. Hervé Fontaine, vice president of enterprise business development for HTC Vive explained: “It is saving time. While before, we had to wait for the factory to be physically built to start training operators, with VR we can now train them before the factory and the equipment are there and without people even being on site.

    Volkswagen is currently deploying a collaborative VR platform in several of its factories, in partnership with German VR company Innoactive, using HTC Vive headsets with the ambition of training 10,000 operators this year.
