Core competencies

IMMERSION is a French SME with over 23 years of experience in augmented reality and virtual reality.
Its teamwork has developed a unique technical expertise and a user-centered design approach recognized by the
most important industrial: Airbus, Alstom, Naval Group, PSA, Renault, LOreal, Louis Vuitton…

Based on these years of experience in the field and an active RTD department, IMMERSION invents, prototypes and
produces innovation for long time clients. Among several other distinctions, IMMERSION received the
“Innovation” Award from Deloitte Technology Fast 50 in November 2014. The company achieved a 8M€ turnover in

IMMERSION has been identified and selected by Microsoft as HoloLens Agency Partner to deploy Mixed-Reality in
industry. IMMERSION RTD department is a team of 15 persons, most of them being doctors, engineers or
sector experts, featuring multi-disciplinary capabilities such as software and hardware development, or human
factors and interaction design. It takes advantage of two other departments giving an exhaustive
overview of its markets in terms of technologies and requirements:

 Integration of VR, AR and MR solutions: http://www.immersion.fr/en/category/realisations/
 Distribution of the best products on the market: https://cornershop.immersion.fr/

The RTD department is now one of the major activities of IMMERSION, since the many abilities exhibited by this
department are providing the company with the capability to develop advanced hardware devices and to
bring research ideas into new products. The close collaboration between IMMERSION and industrial users ensures
such research and development work is on par with the real-world users’ constraints. Its knowledge of
the virtual reality domain, its unique pluri-disciplinary skills and proven research capabilities make the company a
partner of choice as soon as new devices for 3D interaction, 3D visualization or extensive
collaboration are to be created. IMMERSION has therefore contributed to create new collaborative tools for security
and defence experts, for historical industries or creative industries.The RTD department has been
involved or is still involved in multiple EC funded projects: WAVE, INSCAPE, CRIMSON, OPENINTERFACE, VCITY,
