Design Interactive Inc., a provider of augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) training solutions for fleet maintenance, personnel, vendors and OEMs, has announced its Virtual Equipment Training program. Now, companies can use this new capability with its AUGMENTOR transportation focused AR software, enabling for the creation and deployment of training materials on virtual vehicles and equipment. 

“Virtual Equipment Training gives technicians the ability train even when a vehicle or piece of equipment is not available,” says Matt Johnston, division head of commercial solutions for Design Interactive. “This new capability improves shop productivity because technicians no longer have to waste valuable time waiting for equipment to be available or for suppliers to schedule classroom training. Technicians can train using augmented reality anywhere, anytime using nothing more than the phone already in their pocket.”  

Virtual Equipment Training in Design Interactive's AUGMENTOR enables training to include actual and virtual parts, systems and vehicles in one solution. Additionally, with AUGMENTOR, training content can be supplier quickly and easily to technicians on mobile devices in addition to HoloLens headsets. 

“Virtual Equipment Training combines the best of virtual and augmented reality technologies in one piece of software” Johnston states. “With this new capability, suppliers can even test training content for products under development to establish effective and accurate maintenance and repair practices so they are consistently applied, leading to improved compliance and 'fix it right the first time' rates.”
