VR First Design for Interactive Training Simulations

Description

Delta Air Lines is the U.S. global airline leader in safety, innovation, reliability, and customer experience. Powered by its employees around the world, Delta has, for a decade, led the airline industry in operational excellence while building on its reputation for award-winning customer service.

Creating a safe environment for its employees and customers is one of Delta's top priorities. As such, it is imperative that new employees go through rigorous training to do their job safely and effectively to achieve the high-quality service that Delta is known for.

This talk delves into the benefits and challenges of using a virtual reality first design approach for creating interactive training simulations. We explore the advantages of utilizing VR technology to enhance learning and development and how designing with full VR interactivity in mind leads to more effective training outcomes. We will then discuss the impact of adding moderator capabilities into an iPad companion app to enhance the experience for the person in virtual reality and test their skills at a higher level.

Find how Delta identified the intended means of distribution and deployment, as well as the process for determining if WebXR (desktop version of the VR simulation) is a viable solution. We will share the process of adapting the virtual reality simulations for use on desktop platforms to increase accessibility for a wider audience while still preserving immersion. The presentation will cover topics such as the process of designing simulations that are both immersive and effective and the technical considerations involved in adapting VR simulations for use on desktop platforms.

This session will leave attendees with the following takeaways:

• Deeper understanding of how to design and develop training simulations that take full advantage of the unique capabilities of VR technology

• Benefits of intentional design

• How to translate VR simulations to other platforms for maximum reach and impact

• Considerations for prototyping and production before you start your own project

• Technical considerations for designing simulations that can be used in both virtual reality and desktop environments

Description

Clinical training has advanced over the years, and now with the adoption of technology we are able to accelerate human capability via precision simulation using virtual reality (VR) and as a result, advance pre-human competence in surgery and additional clinical environments to improve patient outcomes.

Haptic technology enables users to develop the knowledge of how it feels to perform a procedure correctly or incorrectly – helping to build muscle memory that is particularly important in advanced and precise surgical environments.

This session will discuss the value of Immersive VR and haptic technology environments and experiences that facilitate skills development and transfer, allowing medical device manufacturers to improve access and accelerate procedure and product adoption.

The session will cover the growing body of scientific evidence which demonstrates the value of VR vs. traditional training across various specialties. It will also provide real life case study examples of companies that implemented immersive VR training successfully and showed improvement in patient care while demonstrating significant ROI.

Description

Tabletop exercises can be applied across multiple industries to conduct performance assessments, construction planning, scenario-based training, walkdowns, and other applications. In nuclear and radiological security, the importance of conducting tabletop exercises is an utmost priority. It provides the opportunity to train responders in high consequence low occurrence scenarios.

While our use case is specific to a radiological theft, it is applicable across multiple industries. Coupling augmented reality with a tabletop exercise has proven to be a highly collaborative and more effective than conventional methods. AR headsets provide the capability to perform three-dimensional tabletop exercises in which multiple stakeholders can gather to complete an objective. This gathering can be conducted at a distance saving money, time, and resources.

In this session, we will demonstrate the use of AR in a response tabletop exercise and discuss the benefits of using AR tabletop exercises across industry.
