Description

On Wednesday 5 December 2018, the IET and University of Surrey are proud to host the annual Christmas Lecture.

This year, the lecture will be led by Neil Johnston on the following topic:

A Superfast way to design McLaren’s Superfast cars

Virtual Reality is still in it’s infancy and still proving its worth in the entertainment and games arena. Many pundits are unsure of its lifespan or whether it will become the next step in the evolution of immersive technologies, or whether it will meet the same fate of 3D TV. However, just a brief look at how VR’s breakthrough visualisation technology is impacting business and one can see the value proposition gets very exciting, very quickly. Vector Suite CEO Neil Johnston has a passion for Virtual Reality to deliver on it's promise for the design sector, in particular the industrial design of cars. This lecture will discuss the impact of immersive technologies and will demonstrate (inc, live demo) how startup Vector Suite has utilised VR technology to save a large chunk of time in the design pipeline, not only for specialist car companies such as McLaren, but across the automotive sector.
