The Industrial VR/AR Forum was held in Houston, February 25 – 26, 2020, at the Westin Galleria Hotel. This technology is definitely going to be a part of the future for the oil and gas industry and related industries. What really caught my eye was how this technology is used for training and safety.
Here is a short list of items discussed at the Forum:
- Wellsite planning with augmented reality
- Digital Twins
- Immersive technology in handling hazardous material
- VR/AR training and education benefits
- Scalable VR/AR training across the enterprise
I was also impressed with how digital twins are entering the world of VR/AR. Since a twin is a digital representation of an existing asset, makes perfect sense that the twin can be used for training as relates to that asset.
The Forum comes around every year to Houston. Please visit their website for more information: https://industrialvrarforum.com/
