Virtual and Interactive Environments for Workplaces of the Future

Objective

Scientific and market research indicate that virtual environments (VE) will play a significant role in the workplace of the future. VIEW aims to help establish the role of VEs in supporting high quality work within industrial workplaces of the future. At the same time it aims to understand the impact of VE technologies on their users. Pilot demonstrators of VEs considered will reflect activities across the product life cycle in design, prototyping and training. VE design and circumstances of use will be assessed in terms of their utility, effectiveness and acceptability, their health and safety implications, user satisfaction and development of technical and social skills. Potential barriers of VEs will be understood and evaluation and supporting tools for strategic guidance of industrials users will be developed. The intended outcomes will be generic to help industrial users across Europe to apply VE systems and tools in different domains.
