Audi tests assembly processes for the e-tron GT entirely virtually
- Workflows on assembly line and associated logistics processes are being tested entirely virtually for the first time
- Use of virtual reality facilitates cross-site collaboration and saves resources
- Markus Moinot, Head of Production Planning Processes at Neckarsulm: “The Audi e-tron GT is the first car in the Group to have all its assembly processes and the associated logistics processes tested without an actual prototype”
- 360-degree scan of the production hall provides the basis for planning workshops with virtual reality
Audi is embracing virtual reality (VR) with the Audi e-tron GT: Using VR glasses and controllers, employees from various departments test all assembly processes entirely virtually. Audi has developed in-house its virtual reality software for the process. This relies on 360-degree scans that provide a three-dimensional indoor map for the virtual space. The technology is being used for the first time for testing the assembly processes for the e-tron GT at the Neckarsulm site.
