SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST: VIRTUAL REALITY DRIVING EFFICIENCY BEHIND THE SCENES

March 13, 2017

At this year’s South by Southwest Trade Show, there’s no shortage of augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR) experiences for attendees. Gaming environments, health and fitness, recreational experiences are at a premium, but VR business applications are rare – except at booth 503.

The Home Depot is giving visitors a look inside a virtual supply chain environment designed to optimize how it gets products to customers each day with the help of the HTC VIVE.

Users experience a virtual pallet build that could teach its supply chain team how to maximize cargo space for shipping goods to stores.

SXSW attendees can visit The Home Depot in Exhibition Hall 4 at booth 503.
