Faro Enters Strategic VR Partnership with Hologate

The integration will enable everything to be scanned and simulated in photo-real VR as digital twins.

Faro's Focus Swift enables scanning for large projects and complex areas in as little as one-tenth of the time as it takes with traditional stationary scans.

Faro Technologies today announced a strategic partnership with Hologate's enterprise division HGXR, developers of high-end extended reality (XR) solutions for training and simulation. HGXR systems will integrate Faro digital scanning technology.

The integration will enable anything, from objects and infrastructure to real-life situations and scenarios, to be scanned and simulated in photo-real VR as digital twins, offering customers enhanced training and greater customization potential.

For more than 40 years, Faro has worked on bridging the digital and physical worlds with laser scanning technology that digitally captures any situation or object using 3D point clouds. Point clouds are essentially a collection of individual data points plotted in 3D space from which HGXR creates digital twins, virtual photo-real representations based on the scanned physical environment.

With digital twins HGXR systems users can visualize and simulate any real object, environment or situation in the virtual space. This is indispensable technology for organizations needing to digitally capture a situation or critical infrastructure for any time review, evaluation and training, like process optimization on the factory floor.
