Santa Clara-based EchelonVR has launched an Android application that works with Cardboard and Samsung Gear VR to help heavy equipment dealers to showcase immersive models of their products to customers before they make purchase decisions.
The application, which is available as a free download for Android, is particularly usefulÂ for trade shows and expositions. It uses a look-to-activate mechanic, so no buttons or remote controllers are required.
The company also has a Gear VR version of the application.
“However, we haven’t pushed the app to the Gear VR store,” EchelonVR spokesperson Udhaya Shankar told Hypergrid Business. “We are planning to push it to the Gear VR store after some fine tuning.” ”
For example, usersÂ who look atÂ the engine of a truck will see information pop up aboutÂ its power and torque. Focusing on tires, shows information aboutÂ diameter and weight.
â€œHeavy equipment manufacturers can demonstrate operational experiences of machines to visitors at their trade show booths,â€ Â ShankarÂ said. â€œThis not only educates the audience on product offerings but also helps in standing out at a trade show.â€

Several otherÂ manufacturers have also used virtual reality in expositions to showcase their heavy equipment products. Doosan Infracore, a heavy equipment dealer, used virtual reality to show case equipment atÂ Bauma 2016, a construction and mining event held in Munich
