Virtual Reality Technology Comes to the Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle Market
Brotherwood have long been considered as the innovators of the Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) marketplace – from designing and manufacturing the first Wheelchair Access conversion to be integrated into a standard passenger car back in 1985, to creating the first ‘passenger up-front’ WAV; and introducing new concepts in the WAV market including the first ‘Sports Utility’ WAV and fully-electric wheelchair passenger car.
Now the Dorset-based company has taken another pioneering step with the introduction of ‘WAVR’ – a new online system that enables clients to tour the Brotherwood vehicle range in full immersive 360º Virtual reality – just by using a smartphone and Google Cardboard or Samsung GearVR headset.
Simply attach the headset – or one of Brotherwood’s free WAVR Viewers – and you are transported into the Brotherwood WAV of your choice; you can look around, experience the inclusive, central wheelchair position that is unique to a Brotherwood conversion; see how the Brotherwood low level floor conversion creates superior headroom and visibility out of the windscreen and windows; and get a feel for the quality of finish that Brotherwood WAVs are renowned for.
Of course nothing is the same as trying a vehicle in person – and Brotherwood will carry out a home demonstration of any of their vehicles so that you can ensure that it suits your needs for size, space and comfort at a time and place convenient to you. But for anybody considering a new WAV in 2017, there’s a new way to browse – Brotherwood WAVR.
Brotherwood have a limited number of FREE WAVR Viewers to give away – simply visit www.brotherwood.com/vr to claim your viewer and try WAVR for yourself.
