Implementation of conceptual validation of product mock ups with augmented reality

Gilberto Osorio Gómez, Ricardo Mejía Gutiérrez, David Ríos Zapata


The implementation of computational aids in product design is a demand in the design processes on century XXI, that because they allow an increase in quality and creativity of the deliverables of a design process. But this implementation should be guided to an academic process, where technologies methodologies work along. This article presents the results of an implementation of virtual reality techniques to validate and increased product design courses within the undergraduate electrical mobility in Product Design Engineering at that university.
