Research summary

Current training programs for rail industry employees are delivered in physical training facilities, leading to additional time and costs. Instead, this project aims to implement advanced augmented virtual reality tools to deliver training for workers in a digital training environment. Creating a digital environment enables the rail workers to effectively comprehend, operate and become familiarised with machinery and subsystems via either a virtual world with virtual reality or an overlay on the physical world augmented reality. Once developed, these programs can be implemented to suit a wide range of other rail-related training requirements.

Expected completion date
