12:00 PM – Presentation by Elizabeth Baron, Virtual Reality & Advanced Visualization Technical Specialist. 

Elizabeth will review the Ford immersive Vehicle Environment (FiVE) process, a highly realistic virtual reality system that addresses the unique challenges of automotive design, engineering and ergonomics. 

  • It allows design, engineering, manufacturing, ergonomics, etc. to communicate in a manner that is intuitive and highly productive. 
  • It enables program teams to see and understand, from a customer’s perspective, complex engineering issues while considering the aesthetic design, fit and finish, manufacturability and maintenance of vehicle systems.
  • It pulls geometric and attribute data together to verify vehicle performance to engineering requirements.

You will see a virtual life-sized Mustang you can walk around and interact with as you would in real life. Plus, you will see with x-ray vision the inner workings of the Mustang, and slice through the pony car like you may have seen before with medical simulations.

Remember: Cell phones and cameras are not allowed. Please leave them at home or in your car.
