Training in industrial environments is challenging due to the nature of factory work. The correct handling of machinery, components and technical processes involves laborious and detailed teaching, in order to speed up the integration of new employees and to avoid the risk of accidents during the process. In short, technical work can be very dangerous, and a small error or mistake can have serious consequences.
An innovative way to revitalize and optimize these training processes is through virtual reality. Why not bring reality to a fictitious plane in exchange for safety and efficiency? The virtual environment can be the solution to optimize technical learning, and we’ll explain how.
Virtual reality immerses the user in a fictitious situation, entirely computer-generated. This space can be adapted to representations of reality, so that it acts as a mirror of the tangible world in a realistic and immersive way.
A virtual reality training environment ensures security
Instead of putting a trainee face-to-face with heavy machinery or sharp tools, the virtual environment is the best way to ensure their safety while optimizing the understanding and absorption of knowledge. This is due to the power of the immersive experience, as well as the dynamism of the training. Compared to traditional learning, virtual reality allows the adoption of the gamification technique for a more entertaining and motivating content absorption, which leads to better final results.
Cost savings are also a point to highlight. The digital nature of the training reduces learning and content assimilation time, which minimizes expenses. Furthermore, the educational experiences include step-by-step instructions that give the user autonomy in the process and avoid the need to have an expert constantly on hand.
The digitalization that accompanies virtual reality makes it possible to record the activity of each user for monitoring and evaluation, so that the evolution of learning can be analyzed and the training process can be reviewed. This makes it easier to detect areas of greater difficulty in comprehension and to optimize the training. We can determine, then, that virtual reality is a solution to consider for training professionals in industry, because it supports the learning and safety of the technician, but also saves costs and time for the company.
Our product SAVI as a solution for virtual training adapted to industry
From Innovae we have seen that this is an opportunity to optimize the industry, so we offer our product SAVI as a virtual learning solution. SAVI works through training capsules that include activities such as truck driving practice, the use of overhead cranes or welding work.
In addition to the features mentioned throughout the article, SAVI allows a multi-user connection for training that involves multi-station tasks, allowing simultaneous interaction. It also allows the creation of customized training sessions to suit each case and adapt to the individual learning pace.
