Wesnesday 12the of June, 12:00 – 12:30 (Jean Touton Amphitheater) | « Change Management, adoption & appropriation »


During this presentation, Frederic Rabellino, Technology Specialist VR-AR-MR-AV, will present methods for assessing the acceptability of mixed and virtual reality systems in 2 different contexts, as well as the results of these evaluations:

  • 1st context, implementation of a mixed reality system on a population of French assembly line operators.
  • 2nd context, implementation of virtual reality system on a population of engineers from French, Swedish and American engineering departments.
