(Engineering.com) The AR/VR trainer is a cloud-based simulation tool that uses AR and VR to deliver training protocols. It utilizes the Microsoft’s HoloLens (the first and only self-contained holographic computer) and Windows Mixed Reality headsets, at the center of its design. These work in tandem with the C-300 simulation controller to deliver powerful and engaging visual and aural impact in various training scenarios, such as power supply failure, primary failure, switch overs, etc.
The AR/VR training tool was birthed as part of the Honeywell Connected Plant Skills Insight Immersive Competency program, which is aimed at quickly bringing new industry workers up to speed with latest technology and operational practices. The program was powered by Honeywell Connected Plant and Windows Mixed Reality Platform.
