Is virtual reality (VR) the future of workplace training and fitness? PTI believes so.
Ports that are looking for new ways to train staff, while at the same time keeping them fit, could consider developing software in collaboration with VR accessories such as the ICAROS device in this video. Imagine how much more entertaining training would be if you could fly around an entire port and interact with it using a VR application being played through the headset.
PTI recently explored the idea of using VR for port training with Navis in a Q&A. It seems that this concept is not that far away, especially as VR is already being used for helping people learn potentially hazardous skills such as cooking and for making reading more interesting by allowing you to enjoy your favourite novel in a preferred environment to that you're sitting in.
