A look at the numbers related to VR training.
A Case for VR.
The US Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, cites vehicle crashes as the leading cause of workplace deaths in the United States. Over 90% of such accidents, according to the National Highway Safety Administration, are at least partly due to driver error.
Recent research from Brandon Hall Group shows that the use of virtual reality (VR) as a training modality is growing rapidly in “high-consequence” industries—those in which operator mistakes can cause significant property damage or fatalities or both. According to the study, nearly a third of surveyed companies in such industries identified VR tools as a top learning priority over the next 24 months—a 60% increase over two years.

END OF DISTANCE
Results from an Accenture Technology Vision survey indicated 36 percent of executives identify removing distance barriers between people and information as a driver in their adoption of VR solutions. Through immersive experiences, businesses can tap expertise in thousands of skills from anywhere in the world. VR can also provide remote guided tours and remote collaboration.
How portable is the system?
IRIS is designed to allow you to train anywhere your drivers might be. It is far costly to ship IRIS then it is to ship drivers! IRIS comes in 2 cases that combined weigh a little over 100lbs. The first case is 32″ x 24″ x 14″ and weighs 90lbs, the second case is 22″ x 16″ x 9″ and weighs 20lbs
How many students can watch an instructor using VR at the same time?
- Our multi-user capability allows a group of 5 people to interact with the Circle Check module in IRIS. This fully immersive module allows trainers and drivers to share ideas and their practice daily vehicle inspection skills in a safe “hands-on” environment
How Many Times Can You Replay a Session?
As many times as you’d like to. IRIS tracks and records each session. Augment your training program by replaying each of your IRIS sessions to understand driver behaviours and eye movements in several customizable driving and circle check modules
How is the Cost Compared to a Simulator?
Simulators are 5 – 10 times
