Ministries of Highways
We built a virtual reality snowplow training solution in which users wear the Oculus headset in a prop snowplow cab. The cab features a life-sized snowplow steering wheel, a proper snowplow joystick and pedals for gas and brakes. All positions of the controls match the layout of a standard snowplow cab. There are two stages, a walk-around test and a driving test. The checklist in walk-around mode evaluates your level of safety knowledge. Then begin your route on the highway where you'll have to respond correctly to stop signs, railroad crossings, traffic and wildlife. Trainees will learn the function and layout of commands in the snowplow cab in a hazard-free environment.
