This event format was created with the premise that Paris is the first region in Europe for F500 HQs and that through work with wider Paris region you have the access to 500 million consumers on the European market. 26 companies from all over the world and more than 20 large corporations took part at the central AR/VR Tech meeting.
Thus, in 2018 Paris region event was exclusively devoted to professionals who are developing solutions based on AR/VR in the field such as Eye Tracking, Mixed Reality, Haptics, 3d Sensors, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Motion Tracking, 3d capture.
Not even a snow could stop AR/VR professionals from coming together and joining their business infrastructure. Dassault Systèmes Otium and Accenture participated in the panel and together with others on immersive technologies they provided the information: that although the VR technology is ready, user experience can significantly improve. In terms of AR: user acceptance is easier (due to availability of the gadgets – mobile phones). Still, tech can improve. Some of the challenges facing immersive technologies is to reach escape velocity where ergonomics, precision and scalability become the most important focuses.
