VR and AR are part of a new and exciting realm, but these terms can be as confusing as they are exciting to many people who are not yet familiar. Virtual Reality (VR) implies a completely immersive experience that shuts out the physical world. Augmented Reality (AR) adds digital elements to a live view, often by using the camera on a smartphone.
VRAI for enterprise-level safety, training
Tech start-up VRAI has developed a VR simulation-based platform to help organizations create authentic, immersive, training experiences. The VRAI system combines VR with Artificial Intelligence (AI) to provide enterprise and public service organizations with a scalable, remote training solution. VR simulation training provides reduced risk, improved outcomes, and increased information retention in comparison to traditional training.
The company is on a mission to help large organizations train in a more memorable, measurable, and effective way. VRAI’s data-driven VR simulation training is perfect for high-hazard training with clients like leading organizations such as the Irish Defense Forces, the United Nations in Somalia, and IAG at Heathrow Airport
Its Hazardous Environment Awareness Trainer (HEAT), combines authentic virtual training environments with cutting-edge data capture and analytics capability. Within the platform, environments can be customized with a mix of real footage, 3D modeling, and 360-degree video for maximum authenticity.
VRAI will be attending the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada in January 2022. If you would like to meet with the VRAI team at CES you can contact their Enterprise Ireland Market Advisor Niamh O’Donnell to schedule a meeting at Niamh.ODonnell@enterprise-ireland.com.
