Evaluating 360-virtual reality for mining industry¿s safety training

Chapter


Abstract


  • Virtual Reality (VR) is the most recent technology used to train workers for extreme event scenarios. VR training occurs in a safe and controlled environment which allows the replicable testing of scenarios. Like any other training method, VR based training must be evaluated. This paper reports the trainees’ (mines rescue brigades men) state of mind prior attending 360-VR training and experiences of trainees in 360-VR training. Their perceptions of the realism, success and usefulness of this 360-VR training are discussed, and limitations and implications for future research are identified.
