Army lab develops VR tools

The Advanced Collaborative Environments Lab at the Army's National Automotive Center in Warren, Mich., has created a suite of software and virtual reality tools to lower the cost of development and support, officials announced recently.

ACE demonstrated the new software tools, which keep all of the lab's contractor partners connected, at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference in Orlando, Fla., last month.

CAVE, a virtual reality device, makes it possible to view objects three-dimensionally instead of as a computer-based model, officials said.

With CAVE, engineers, program managers, users and contractors in any part of the world can work on a common project in real time in 3-D, they said.
