Description

New and emerging technologies are revolutionizing the way end-users interact with their environment, and reshaping organizational training. How can we leverage these new technologies to help individuals learn and practice the various skills associated to their current roles in a real world environment? Augment Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) provide a range of possible solutions. So, where do you begin? How do you encourage adoption, spark innovation, and accelerate integration of an AR/VR solution? What do I need to know? Discuss the various forms of virtual reality currently available for training and development Review various uses cases for AR/VR, and see it in action Discuss how to request and integrate AR/VR within your organization address the business challenges and roadblocks to adoption

Storytelling is as old as time itself. As humans, we have used stories for centuries to build collective knowledge, adapt, and to learn. With each new technology the way we experience stories, educate, and learning evolves. Now we are in the time of XR. We have lived the early years of XR technology dissemination and today we can begin to collectively reflect and share our knowledge on what is and is not working, what creates the most impact in XR for users, and how best to improve these experiences. In this session, two experts with very different backgrounds compare notes and share their experiences from the cognitive science perspective and the simulation technologies perspective. This is the beginning of a conversation establishing guidelines to augment learning by living memorable virtual experiences.

Description

Bath Iron Works and Electric Boat are two large shipbuilders that are actively involved in deploying AR applications for direct manufacturing. This presentation will highlight some of the long history of advanced visualization technologies used in ship design. We will move on to more recent developments in the use of AR in the shipyard. We will discuss some of the unique challenges of doing R&D in the defense industry, and the difficulties of moving new technologies into a production setting. Both shipyards are part of the larger General Dynamics Corporation (GD). We will share lessons learned in the establishment of an XR working group across all the business units of GD, and some success stories of collaboration. Finally, we will show some examples of AR applications we are fielding in production, and touch on future plans.
