Today, new technologies such as augmented reality and virtual reality have created a lot of changes in various industries. With affordable software and hardware solutions, the maritime industry has also made use of the most advanced options for using such advanced technologies.From simple navigation to heavy-duty in-ship operations that can be easily simulated in a virtual environment and used to train marine personnel. The Naval Training School is comprised of two main parts: the education department and the qualification assessment division
There are also some additional requirements for radar and ARPA simulators. In all tables in STCW 2010, with the minimum standards required for ratings and specializations, marine simulators are, in most cases, a standard and appropriate method for training.Using employee simulators, they can go to any point of the ship and interact with different types of ship using different tools, such as door opening or machinery inspection.
IMO has been trying to create a database of approved simulators that can be accessed in the GISIS database. Marine simulators of various sizes, even with a simple PC and monitor capable of meeting the standards of the case Requirements are issued by certification authorities.
The use of technology in the training process makes the minds of the employees more involved and easily communicate with the environment without any risk. On the other hand, organizations can increase productivity, and by creating safer operations and improving efficiency in save costs.In addition to training, VR can be used to test equipment and products in the virtual environment before making them, increasing the quality and flexibility.
