Virtual Crew Product by Duke Energy One
Virtual Crew is a experiential training and testing product by Duke Energy 1 that uses virtual and augmented reality. The benefits are:
• Immersive and interactive: The user can interact with the virtual environment in a safer way than “real” reality.
• Sensory reaction: Immersion triggers the user’s emotions in addition to multiple senses, giving the sensation of reality, not just a 3D view.
• Real-time feedback: Users can experience the real-time consequence of their choices in a safe environment.
• Focus: Virtual reality uniquely focuses the user’s attention on the training and experience.
“I’ve become a huge believer in this process. I was skeptical of VR at first, but over the past few months of seeing employees gain comfort and trust, I’ve done the same… The largest thing for me is how we’re keeping the employees out of dangerous environment.”
“Deliver training more efficiently and effectively. We can simulate in VR what we would not expose our employees in a training environment and frankly, in VR we could simulate what would happen if something goes wrong.”
