Design Interactive Inc. has released Virtual Equipment Training, which, when used in conjunction with its Augmentor transportation-focused augmented reality software, allows for the creation and deployment of training materials on virtual vehicles and equipment.
“Virtual Equipment Training gives technicians the ability train even when a vehicle or piece of equipment is not available,” said Matt Johnston, division head of commercial solutions for Design Interactive. “This new capability improves shop productivity because technicians no longer have to waste valuable time waiting for equipment to be available or for suppliers to schedule classroom training. Technicians can train using augmented reality anywhere, anytime using nothing more than the phone already in their pocket.”
Virtual Equipment Training in Design Interactive’s Augmentor enables training to include actual and virtual parts, systems and vehicles in one solution. Additionally, with Augmentor, training content can be supplied to technicians on mobile devices in addition to HoloLens headsets, the company says.
Augmentor from Design Interactive also features a new web portal for creating, editing and distributing training modules to Android and iOS mobile devices and HoloLens headsets.
