The Finger Tracking option: A natural way to interact within the VR environment!

 

The TechViz Finger Tracking option enables to touch parts and interact with them in a very natural way. It is ideal to evaluate users’ perception of a product or simulate an assembly task to measure time and feasibility.

Why use TechViz Finger Tracking?

  • Visualize your fingers to check accessibility. Users will see an accurate representation of their fingers. Collisions between fingers and product will be understood by users with sound, colors and haptic feedback (with compatible device)
  • Interact with your environment. It is possible to trigger cinematics. You can create cinematics using the Virtual Assembly and Video Recording options by TechViz. Then, specify the triggering parts and associate the cinematics on it. Once you touch those parts the cinematics will start.
  • Evaluate tactile HMI in your virtual environment. When combined with Interactive Image Integration users will be able to virtually control their tactile HMI for product ergonomics evaluation.

Use Cases:

  • TechViz Finger Tracking is used for Lean Manufacturing. Engineers can evaluate if workers can operate their shops,  It can also be used to measure the time to perform task.
  • Compared to Cardboard style testing, it is quick to setup, multiple variants can be simulated. Any variant can be stored and evaluated again months after the first try.
  • The TechViz Finger Tracking option is used for Tractor Design. Engineers analyze reachability and accessibility of the different equipment. They check ergonomics of their onboard computer HMI. Thanks to the haptic feedback of the ART Vibro Tactile Feedback, the experience is more realistic than ever, giving engineers an accurate customer perception.

Key features

  • Compatible with a VR headset
  • Collision detection: display collision or haptic feedback
  • Compatible with all supported 3D applications
  • Simple and interactive

Use your hands in your Virtual Reality experience

With the TechViz Finger Tracking option, you will be able to visualize your hands and interact with your model. You can simulate an assembly task to measure its time and feasibility!

How does the TechViz Finger Tracking work?

TechViz’s Finger Tracking option works with our 3D visualization software TechViz XL.

TechViz XL is a Virtual Prototyping software acting like a driver to capture directly your 3D model (Autodesk Navisworks, Siemens Jack, Dassault Systemes 3DVia, etc). The Finger Tracking option of this VR software is compatible with the professional devices ; ART Vibro Tactile Finger Tracking, ART Finger Tracking, Cyberglove, Canon MR and the LeapMotion.

Furthermore, this unique technology can combine ART, Cyberglove or leapmotion with the popular headset HTC Vive or Oculus.
