Toyota has indeed become one of the ‘victims’ of the popularity of the metaverse. Although it was clear he was not alone. Companies such as Ford, Nissan, and Hyundai, for example, also enter the world of the metaverse. But Toyota did not want to rush into this new world. This Japanese company started from a simple thing, namely Toyota entered the world of the metaverse from the workspace. Something very good prudence but still not to miss.
In practice, Toyota has metaverse-style virtual workspaces for several departments and subsidiaries. Employee avatars walk around office settings, take part in meetings, and chat with each other. This seems to make many jobs appear more efficient and dynamic. In addition, the convenience of working and flexibility for employees is easy for them to get.
Meanwhile, in the parent company, virtual workplaces also exist. Technical development teams and human resources use this virtual workplace. Thus, Toyota is very likely to develop further in the future.
“With more people working from home due to the coronavirus, we are providing younger employees and other communication options within the company,” said a representative. As we refer from asia.nikkei.
On the other hand, Nissan Motor has also put its own spin on the metaverse with virtual showrooms and office space. Nissan has created a virtual reality version of the Nissan Crossing gallery in Tokyo’s upscale Ginza district. Nissan uses the US startup VRChat platform.
The VR room showcases the new Ariya electric vehicle. Selected visitors join the virtual world tour. Showrooms can host vehicle launches and other events.
