ford3d A New Way to Build a Car

Years ago, Ford would have to physically build all the parts for a new vehicle, and only discover afterwards whether it was feasible to have it’s employees assemble the vehicle. Now, it uses the same motion-capture systems used to shoot your favorite 3D movies and games to test the vehicle’s construction in virtual reality, years before a single part  needs to be made. IDG got to see the system in action at Ford’s Assembly Ergonomics Lab in Dearborn.  Click more to see the video testing out the virtual assembly line.
