Gamify Training with Augmented and Virtual Reality

Forget the manuals—experience immersive game-based safety training. The UH research team focuses on transforming the paper-based safety training into an immersive game-based safety training. The developed safety training program puts the trainees into a virtual environment where they need to identify potential safety hazards around them and respond accordingly. Put on the AR/VR headset and test your abilities to identify and respond to virtual hazards.
