Why VR and AR in maritime?
In the maritime industry, most work tasks are carried out in an environment where training is either expensive or difficult. At the same time, accuracy and safety are crucial to both people and products. Virtual reality creates a safe environment to train and learn how to carry out important procedures and stay safe, while you do it.
Augmented Reality can also play a central role in diminishing costs and improving efficiency. Running maintenance tasks are frequently carried out to ensure safety and certification requirements are up to standard. Augmented Reality can heavily reduce the time spent on documentation
