From midair 3D designing and undertaking immersive experiences to learning more about things like coffee and our planet, from testing out 3D digital drones and how to modify nuclear pumps to getting a closer look at molecules, many companies around the world are introducing augmented and virtual reality into their operations. At the WorldSkills Skills Show Australia 2018 in Sydney this week, Deakin University and Tradiebot Industries launched a collaborative research project that will explore using both AR and VR to prepare workers for the future of manufacturing. Using these technologies for training purposes can blur the line between the physical and cyber worlds to create a true sense of immersion.
This is the first time that Tradiebot is exhibiting its transformative projects at the show. In addition to the university, Tradiebot, which worked on the automotive Repair Bot project, is also attending the show and partnering with automotive industry heavyweights Capital S.M.A.R.T. Repairs and PPG on the project.
