Optimize industrial training with immersive virtual reality

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

This company’s Immersive Field Simulator (photo) is an advanced industrial-training solution that combines 3D immersive technology with operator-training simulation to create a collaborative learning environment for plant operators and field technicians. The system provides virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality tools that incorporate a digital twin of the physical plant to provide targeted, on-demand, skill-based training for workers. The system offers a smooth, virtual walkthrough to familiarize workers with the plant. It includes avatars that represent virtual team members. The simulator’s cloud-hosted, device-agnostic platform, which incorporates flexible 3D models, grows with the user as plant operations change. The simulator is customizable to meet specific instructional needs, and project team members can easily create customized training modules. — Honeywell Process Solutions, Houston
