Transforming Highway Construction Training through Multi-User Immersive Augmented Virtual Reality

Transforming Highway Construction Training through Multi-User  Immersive Augmented Virtual Reality

This project aims to take highway construction worker training to the next level and bridge the gap in the current traditional worker training methods. The project will develop innovative content-based Augmented VR training that enables a seamless training experience for the workers, taking into account the specific job environments they will be imposed to, incorporating user preferences and visually conveying information to users through creative strategies. The multi-user approach of the research further enables the simulation of the real environment and encourages collective engagement in mitigating hazardous situations.
