HTC Vive Helps Dassault Systèmes Visualise City Data at the World Cities Summit

    HTC made its way other to the World Cities Summit this year in Singapore, along with Dassault Systèmes, to show how cities and urban areas can benefit from the latest technologies, and how the two companies work together with 3DEXPERIENCE City to promote city renewal and sustainability.

    Dassault Systèmes analyses city management and virtually simulate what it could be like to implement city optimisation – and they do this with the HTC Vive. Visitors to the summit can try out Virtual Singapore and see how it integrates city data into the city itself.

    In the video below, Ingeborg Rocker, Vice President of Dassault Systèmes, talks about 3DEXPERIENCE City: “3DEXPERIENCE City, as the name already says, is focusing on experiences through the holistic approach we bring to the table, meaning that we look at all the different processes, never just from a silo point of view, and never technocratically focused only.”

    The data it shows includes health and social services, utilities, mobility, security, public safety, facilities management and environmental planning. With the HTC Vive, users can access a “serious VR game” where they are encouraged to create a more sustainable environment and city ecosystem through changing the virtual configuration of a Singapore apartment.

    “Together, Dassault Systèmes and HTC are demonstrating to city planners and leaders the world over the power of 3D virtual solutions for enabling people to truly experience and understand real world challenges and reimagine the solutions,” said Cher Wang, CEO of HTC, in a press release. “Dassault Systèmes’ powerful 3DEXPERIENCE City platform combined with our Vive systems are excellent examples of how fully immersive virtual reality lends itself to key public sector applications.”

    The World Cities Summit is taking place in Singapore from 10th to 14th July this year. and HTC along with Dassault Systèmes has already given its demonstration and talk.
