A pair of projects that aim to transform how Canada competes globally in the automobility industry have collided in the birthplace of the country’s auto industry: Windsor.
There is now a digital twin of the Project Arrow vehicle, a zero-emission Canadian made concept vehicle spearheaded by the Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association (APMA).
The virtual model of the fully rendered Arrow vehicle will exist inside of the WindsorEssex Economic Development Corporation’s (WEEDC) virtual reality CAVE.
“We’re challenging people’s perception of manufacturing,” said Flavio Volpe, president of the APMA, who believes there could be close to a third of the Arrow vehicle’s parts made in Windsor-Essex.
