About the project

OpenVR deals with the use of Virtual reality in the very early phases of ship design processes.

The objective is to understand what VR-enhanced design activities may better support the collaborative work of the different discipline experts working together in ship design processes; with a specific group of experts in mind: the end-users of the ship, who have the operational understanding of what a ship should be made of, and how it should be used. The focus of the project is to improve the workplace of users, both the ship designer’s workplace, and the navigator’s workplace.
