Augmented Reality in the News Virtual technology brings real safety benefits 3PL opts for pick-by-vision technology When Virtual Reality Is More Than Real Augmented reality goes live in 90 days to meet seasonal rush Smart phone bar code scanning technology enhances customer service More Augmented Reality News Industry 4.0: Real Cases of Productivity, Efficiency and Profits Wednesday, December 16, 2020 | 2pm ET All Resources The most obvious safety features of a lift truck are physical features of the truck, like its horn, lights, or even how its cab, mast and seating are designed to maximize visibility. Few of us think of something digital like virtual reality (VR) technology as having a safety benefit. However, some lift truck providers are using VR as the basis for VR training systems and software modules that a DC can leverage to improve the safety habits of operators. VR education can help onboard new operators quickly, though it also may be used to correct bad habits or ensure operators with incidents get extra training specific to the incident, says Jack Kaumo , director of iWarehouse Technology Solutions for The Raymond Corp. VR education for lift trucks is more than a set of static video lessons. It uses VR goggles that can detect where the person undergoing the training is looking, and it can connect right into the control system of an actual lift truck, so the operators are engaging real truck controls for the VR session. In short, it’s a virtual environment that replicates the physical world of the warehouse, with a digital record of what was done right (or wrong) during each session. “It feels like you are in the actual environment,” says Kaumo. “When you press forward to make a truck move forward in VR, it’s going to travel at the […]
