Virtual reality


Plant manufacturers will be able to slash the costs of R&D thanks to virtual reality software that creates a life-size image of the machine, which can be viewed in three dimensions, according to the Construction Equipment Association.The CEA is demonstrating the system at a series of roadshows.'Component suppliers can get on board at an early stage to discuss how to improve the machine before it is even built.
