VR Safety creates a new interactive 3D virtual platform to assist in training and inductions for the construction, mining, oil and gas industries.
Studies show 78 percent of viewers retain more information compared with conventional methods when using interactive visual content.
The interactive training creates a virtual environment with enhanced visual audio and video integration.
Virtual reality platforms can be adapted into a suite of modules for safety training.
The objective of the project is to develop and test an immersive virtual reality system that can be effectively used to greatly improve the safety outcomes of real construction projects. The system is similar to a sophisticated, immersive computer game, with each interactive software module recreating environments for various training scenarios that can be displayed in multiple theatre modes. These include the 180-degree iDome for individual training sessions, and the 360-degree platform for group training within the immersive Advanced Visualisation and Interaction Environment.
