Virtual reality training

Virtual reality enables highly effective hands-on training, comparable to physical training – but with lower cost, less risk and more fun.

Stereoscape delivers comprehensive VR training solutions including everything from content to equipment. Different training scenarios can be built on your existing CAD designs. The state-of-the-art VR systems provided by our partner WorldViz enable trainees to feel the movement of walking, running, crouching, turning, gesturing or manipulating simulated objects and even feel their palms get sweaty in an interactive and immersive virtual learning environment.

Collaborative VR in training

COST AND TIME SAVINGS

  • No need to use expensive actual equipment, real materials or costly mock-ups in training.
  • Less travel, improved training outcomes, less errors and lower accident probability resulting from effective training reduce operating expenses.
  • Training in an immersive and interactive VR environment significantly shortens learning curves.

IMPROVED SAFETY

  • Immersive training that realistically mimics real-world jobsite hazards and safety issues helps workers respond quickly, confidently and correctly in stressful situations and prevents loss and injury when real crises occur.
  • Learners can re-enact potentially dangerous situations multiple times and explore the consequences of different actions.

IMPROVED PERFORMANCE

  • Chance to make mistakes, actively learn from them and practice the right way to do things in a safe virtual environment improves performance.
  • Practicing rarely occurring tasks helps perform consistently and effectively even in unexpected situations.
  • Both beginners’ basic training and experienced employees refining and reinforcing their skills benefit from VR training.

BETTER KNOWLEDGE RETENTION

  • Practical activity promotes retention of information. People learn best when training emulates real life even in terms of the muscles one needs to operate or install equipment.
  • The human brain’s ability to call back vivid memories and experiences from a virtual environment leads to better performance in both normal and abnormal real-life situations.

HIGHER MOTIVATION

  • Practice is not boring in a compelling virtual world that keeps trainees engaged and encourages them to continually hone their skills.
  • Unlike passive training methods, “gamified” interactive VR appeals to younger employees.
  • VR training motivates individuals by catering for different learning styles.

LESS DISRUPTION

  • No loss of production and no disruption to operations because of tying up equipment or even shutting down facilities to enable hands-on training.
  • No risk of damage to valuable equipment as in on-site training.
  • No health risk to inexperienced trainees unfamiliar with the equipment or site.

FASTER STARTUP

  • Employees can familiarise themselves with their future working environment in virtual reality settings long before the real-life facility is in operation.
  • Effective training leads to smoother startup and faster ramp up of production of a new plant or unit resulting in less revenue lost.

IMPROVED KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER

  • Retirement of older workers can cause serious skill shortages that hurt performance.
  • The collective knowledge and skills of experienced employees can be utilised in the design of VR training experiences and subsequently transferred to new and less-seasoned employees.
