The task was to develop innovative applications and solutions for SMEs and their environment with the help of students in different semesters and ideally different courses of study. These were used by the use of Virtual Reality (VR) to gain advantages in the context of their business operations in defined areas of application. For example: a better understanding among customers, acceptance of the company as an employer, aftercare in the medical-therapeutic area, virtual tour, virtual space, etc.
The task was also to communicate in distributed teams and communicate interdisciplinarily and to improve the products / demos by means of different methods (Agile Programming, Open Innovation, Design thinking, ..). In addition to online communication with distributed teams, the students also learned how to communicate with customers and their visions regarding projects that affect your processes. In addition, a good insight into the world of VR / AR was achieved and the possibilities for the use of such technologies were mediated.
The Project was funded by the Province of Lower Austria (Department K3 - Science and Research).
