In the world of a major electricity transmission network operator, safety and efficiency are crucial elements of success. Operational teams, are often exposed to high-risk situations, necessitating proper and accurate training. Virtual reality offers a unique opportunity to improve safety and training efficiency, reducing costs, and making learning more engaging.
Applying new virtual reality technologies to corporate training
In recent years, virtual reality has shown its immense potential in the field of training. With this technology, practical and engaging learning experiences can be provided, offering numerous advantages for operational teams. These include the ability to practice in extremely realistic scenarios without the risk of accidents, reducing training costs, and the possibility to personalize the learning path for each participant.
The immersive 3D simulation: a realistic and engaging experience
3D immersive simulations provide a unique learning experience for operators. They can train on complex and potentially dangerous activities in an extremely realistic virtual environment that is safe and controlled. The risks associated with heights and electrocution are kept at the exercise level but eliminated in practice, ensuring maximum safety during training. This approach allows workers to solidify skills and positive habits, gaining familiarity with situations they encounter in the field.
The initial hub: a personalized access point for various training programs
AnotheReality has developed an initial hub that serves as a personalized access point for the available training programs. Within it, operators interact with work tools and personal protective equipment, following correct procedures just as they would in real-life situations. They can choose the training path that best suits their needs and monitor progress and acquired skills over time. The flexibility of the tool allows for training to be adapted to the specific needs of each worker, ensuring more effective and targeted learning.
Integrated content and educational tools: videos, photos, and visual feedback for comprehensive learning
AnotheReality’s immersive virtual reality simulations integrate content and educational tools such as videos, photos, and visual feedback. Users are tasked with completing operations correctly but are supported by a UI panel that provides instructions through multimedia content. Visual support and step-by-step guidance facilitate the learning of operational procedures, improving understanding and retention of key concepts.
Collaboration with expert technical teams: maximum relevance to reality
To ensure that the simulations are as relevant to reality as possible, AnotheReality’s designers have closely collaborated with expert technical teams. 3D models, sounds, and procedures have been carefully replicated, making virtual training a perfect ally for training process. Instructors, having such a powerful tool at their disposal, can ensure maximum effectiveness and reliability in the training process.
Conclusions: The future of corporate training and the benefits of immersive simulations in virtual reality
The project developed by AnotheReality aims to increase workplace safety, reduce incidents, save costs, and improve the utilization of corporate resources. Virtual reality also allows training to be adapted to the industry’s constantly evolving needs, preparing operational teams to face future challenges with greater competence and safety.
In conclusion, immersive simulations in virtual reality represent the future of corporate training, offering innovative and highly effective solutions to ensure safety and efficiency at work. AnotheReality is the leading partner in this field, capable of developing immersive simulations that enable comprehensive and engaging learning, with tangible and long-lasting results. Investing in this type of training becomes a crucial step in ensuring the long-term success of companies and the well-being of their employees.
The VR application was developed on the Unity v2019.4.26f1 development platform.
The VIVE Pro viewer is required to use the application.
