Manufacturing Track

NVIDIA GPUs: Powering innovation in design, engineering, marketing and sales

The Manufacturing track at GTC takes place on March 17-18, 2015 and will provide an exciting forum for in-depth exploration of how NVIDIA's GPUs are driving innovation across automotive, aerospace, apparel, architecture-engineering-construction, and consumer products companies. Sessions will highlight real-world examples from actual customers discussing and demonstrating technology trends, such as remote visualization, photorealistic ray-tracing, virtualizing CAD software, and the impact of mobile platforms.

Speakers at the 2014 event included:

Benoit Deschamps and Alain Gonzalez who described how PSA Peugeot Citroen's IT department improved Human Machine Interface Design workflow with tools, efficient workflows and hardware for designing, evaluating and simulating HMI in new car models.
