Chrysler and Google have teamed up to make a virtual factory tour
Chrysler has created an awesome new tour of the automaker’s Sterling Heights Assembly Plant in Michigan to highlight the launch of the new 2015 Chrysler 200 by allowing people to experience the manufacturing process behind the new vehicle. Rather than brining the people to the manufacturing plant, however, Chrysler is bringing the plant to the people with a virtual tour.
The tour will be powered by Google Maps Business View, which is the same technology that Google uses for its Street View service, and in this application, the camera will take users along a 360-degree interactive journey inside the five million square foot manufacturing plant. Users will be able to “walk” through a dozen different stations of the plant beginning with the body assembly right through to the quality control and the finished product.
“I personally wish everyone could visit the plant to walk through and experience the fascinating process live. But since we can’t bring people to the plant, we’ve worked with Google to openly bring the plant to the people, so they can themselves experience how these processes drive precision, reliability and deliver an exceptional and truly all-new Chrysler 200,” said Olivier Francois, chief marketing officer of Chrysler.
