Airbus Unveils Industry-First Immersive Remote Experience for Aircraft Cabin Customization
Airbus has unveiled a novel immersive remote collaboration solution, based on mixed reality technologies, to ease the aircraft interior customization process. The concept will transform the way aircraft cabins are designed by enabling live and remote customer interactions.
On Wednesday (June 21, 2023), at the Paris Air Show, Airbus unveiled an industry-first collaborative solution, based on mixed reality technologies, for aircraft interior customization. The new concept will transform the way Airbus defines aircraft cabins by enabling live and remote interactions with customers in an immersive virtual world. With holograms in a 3D environment, users will be able to visualize various cabin design choices and test different interior configurations, materials and colors, in real-time, regardless of location. The ‘Airbus immersive remote collaboration’ solution will be rolled out for the A320 Family by 2025.
In today’s announcement, Airbus’ EVP – Digital and Information Management, Catherine Jestin, said,
“With this new solution, Airbus is opening a new era where mixed reality will help shape the future of aircraft cabin definition. We are leveraging the power of data and most advanced technologies to create engaging, interactive and realistic virtual experiences for our customers, accessible at any time, from anywhere in the world. This shows how we foster digital innovation at Airbus for all our products and services, always keeping our customers at heart.”
The new ‘Airbus immersive remote collaboration’ solution supports the company’s ambition to deploy a fully digital end-to-end approach for industrial operations to improve aircraft design quality, while supporting production ramp-up and increasing customer satisfaction.
