The View from Above. Training with VR Aerial Technology
From inside a police cruiser, a pit maneuver looks very similar to other actions an officer must take during a pursuit. From fifty feet in the air, however, seeing how to nudge the bumper of a fugitive vehicle with the nose of the chase car to bring a high-speed pursuit to a safe conclusion is both elegant and instructive.
Employees in industrial or construction settings often work in trenches, silos, or other confined spaces. Being able to view those situations from above is often the best way to train employees in the correct procedures to get the job done right and keep themselves out of harm’s way at the same time.
Sometimes, taking the high ground is the only way to truly capture scenarios such as these from the most instructive perspective. And when you can immerse trainees in a 360-degree aerial environment through virtual reality technology, they become connected to the learning experience in ways they’ve never been able to before.
Too expensive, you say? Your meager training budget would never be able to afford something like that? Then consider that all you need to provide this newest wave of training technology for as many employees as you need is an app downloaded to current mobile device and an inexpensive VR headset.
360immersive is one of only a handful of companies in the U.S. with professional expertise in this cutting-edge technology. In addition to a full complement of VR cameras, accessories, and editing software, they’re fully FAA certified, licensed and insured for all aspects of aerial drone projects. Their aerial platforms are specifically designed with retractable landing gear to facilitate completely immersive videography.
Trainees experience the sensation of being present in the instructional environment; able to see and hear everything above, below, and all around them. Used as a supplement to traditional training methods, VR provides a higher level of connectivity, resulting in increased engagement and greater content retention. And the best part: trainees can re-visit all or part of the course any time they want.
