June 1, 2023: Virtualware unveils their first VR Room in Canada at McMaster Innovation Park

On Thursday, June 1, Virtual Reality (VR) Lab IMRSV@MAC, powered by VIROO®, opened their doors for the official grand opening of their new space.

Guests at the grand opening event had the opportunity to explore the facility and experience live demonstrations of VR use cases developed by engineering professor and Canada Research Chair in Transportation Electrification and Smart Mobility, Ali Emadi’s research team from the McMaster Automotive Resource Centre (MARC).

Using VR technology, this team has been developing virtual reality simulations to test and develop the travellers experience in a transit station. Through simulations of station gates, vending machines and validators, they hope to create a completely accessible transportation system experience for diverse travellers.
