“Ford immersive Vehicle Environment (FiVE) is a highly realistic immersive virtual reality system that addresses the unique challenges of automotive design, engineering, and ergonomics. Its collaborative approach allows various disciplines at Ford to communicate effectively in a common environment, in a manner that is intuitive and highly productive. FiVE enables program teams to see and understand complex engineering issues from any customer’s perspective, while considering aesthetic design, fit and finish, manufacturability, and maintenance requirements. “
