Toyota’s SAS safety simulator
Toyota Material Handling Europe challenged us in finding a new solution to raise awareness around safety to showcase at CeMAT2014, the biggest and most important fair for Material Handling in Europe.
Create a solution that enables Toyota to show the benefit of their System of Active Stability. SAS is a technology that prevents a forklift from tipping over. What better way to show or experience this as with VR.
The solution provide also needed to be use-able in a training environment.
VR was the perfect solution for the job! Creating a full immersive experience to engage drivers in a fun and pleasant way.
To best show all the benefits VR has to offer for safety training we created a VR simulator by using intuitive 360° virtual reality headgear and realistic drivers’ seats allowing workers to hone their skills without using expensive real world equipment.
Lowering the cost of expensive operator training, reducing the risk of accidents in the workplace and a high customer retention are the key benefits of using VR for safety training.
