Implementation and Evaluation of a Vr Task-based Training Tool for Conveyor Belt Safety Training

  title={Implementation and Evaluation of a Vr Task-based Training Tool for Conveyor Belt Safety Training},
  author={John Messner and Jason David Lucas},
Conveyor belts are dangerous to the working environment and the source of many injuries and fatalities that end up costing the industry a lot of money. In order to reduce the injuries that occur on an annual basis, better training techniques are examined. Virtual reality is examined as a way to enhance current training practices that consist mainly of slide show presentations and videos. Virtual reality is examined for task-based training where the user can interact with a working environment… CONTINUE READING
