Virtual Reality

Simumatik is prepared for handling VR straight out of the box. This technology enables greater interaction for the user with their systems, which can be used in operator training for example. Once you access, if a VR headset is detected, your browser will show a pop-up asking for permissions.


Remember to calibrate the VR equipment first, refer to the documentation from the manufacturer of your VR-kit for instructions on how to do this.
