BOHEMIA INTERACTIVE SIMULATIONS DEVELOPS AUGMENTED REALITY VISUAL SYSTEM FOR TRU SIMULATION ....
Nov 28, 2017
ORLANDO, Fla. (USA) — Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim), a global developer of advanced simulation and training software, has developed an augmented reality visual system for TRU Simulation + Training Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, that provides a synthetically generated visual scene and supports a trainee’s interactions with the real world. Leveraging emerging AR/VR technologies, the system enables the trainee to see and interact with the physical aircraft controls, equipment, and crew members using video which is digitally composited with a highly realistic, synthetically generated virtual environment. The combined real and virtual scene is displayed in a helmet-mounted display worn by the trainee.
Integrated with TRU’s Bell V-280 Valor technology demonstrator, the solution provides a highly interactive visual environment combined with tactile feedback and physical interactions with controls in a cost-effective, portable package with potential to support a new class of training and simulation. The system is on display this week during I/ITSEC 2017, the world’s largest simulation and modeling conference in the world, in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center at TRU Simulation + Training Inc.’s booth #1700.
