VRETA is an immersive virtual reality simulation solution for onboard emergency training and drills. Combining safety training expertise and mobile VR-technology VRETA merges the best practices in safety training with the latest technology.
Virtual Reality (VR) is a computer technology that uses Virtual Reality headsets to generate realistic images, sounds and other sensations to simulate the on board environment. When you move around and look around you will see exactly the same things that you would see on board. Within this risk-free environment you can do training in restricted areas of the ship or drills where there are risks for the crew members.
A Study from aviation in Safety knowledge transfer through mobile virtual reality confirms the efficiency:
“The results of the study show that the participants who used the mobile VR tool were able to transfer the presented safety knowledge to the real world, and don a lifejacket significantly faster and with fewer errors than participants who used the traditional briefing card. The mobile VR tool was perceived as significantly more engaging, simpler, and more effective than the traditional briefing card.”
