Abstract

Visualizing a new design in Virtual Reality (VR) is now a part of product development pipeline in several industries. Several researchers have demonstrated attaining higher level of immersion by creating photoreal virtual environments and by using advanced devices which are now available in the market to get higher level of tracking accuracy and higher degree of interaction. In this work, we have explored the possibility of using the VR technology during the design phase with a multidisciplinary approach. Through this work, we have demonstrated that a regular Head Mounted Display (HMD) which lacks several features when compared to the pricier ones is sufficient for product development and visualization. Using VR, we even managed to design the building which will house the product that we developed. We have chosen a poultry farm that breeds chickens for this study and solved their problem of repetitive manual work by designing an automated feeding system. We manged to all this with the same virtual environment that we have developed for the purpose of this study.
