Now VR technology has been successfully out of the laboratory, and into people’s daily life, in addition to the widely used field of game entertainment, VR technology has also been widely used in logistics, industry and medical fields. Due to the low cost and high security of VR application, the aviation industry is gradually introducing VR technology to the field of flight training in recent years.
Recently, Japanese aviation giant ana announced that it will help its pilots predict flight risks through VR training system and improve the safety of its aircraft. ANA said that its latest VR safety training system will use 3D simulation working environment, and pilots participating in the training program need to follow the instructions of VR training system to operate safely while performing flight tasks.
ANA is not the first airline to apply VR technology to flight training. In December 2019, Raytheon, the US defense contractor, launched the V-22 Osprey tiltrotor VR training system to provide immersive simulated flight training such as aviation maintenance and pilot training.
At the same time, the aviation flight simulator CAE also recently released the latest version of VR training system, which is said to help the army improve combat effectiveness and reduce the training cost of pilots.
In addition, UC Irvine Medical Center, together with Chenega and medcognition, conducted a study to test the psychological effect of medical simulation training through AR technology. The two-year study, the psychological and physiological impact assessment of AR, received 920000 in December.
