Swedish Railway Operator SJ Uses VR To Train Staff

When companies start to look at the way virtual reality (VR) can benefit their business its usually along the lines of education and training, cutting the costs of learning on actual equipment. Which is exactly why Swedish railway operator SJ has collaborated with creative studio Vobling AB – a subsidiary of Bublar Group AB – on an educational VR experience focused on the coming upgraded X2000 trains.

Vobling has been tasked with further developing the VR platform and a number of new teaching experiences covering multiple train models in its fleet. This will enable employees to be educated in areas such as protocol-based routines, security procedures with scenario-based training.

“We are setting up VR-stations across the country to make our VR-education accessible to our employees. Our goal is to utilize VR in a way that can increase the quality and effectiveness of our internal education”, says Claes Lindholtz, Director Business Development and Digital Transformation at SJ in a statement.

“This SJ-project is an important and strategic order for us and indicates that demand for AR/VR services is expanding. Specifically we see that SJ and other clients are seeking to develop scalable solutions that can increase operational productivity and efficiency. We are proud to join forces with SJ and to play a part in their mission to digitize and enhance learning and education targeting employees”, says Anders Ribbing, CEO Vobling.

A solutions and consulting company founded in 2015 providing the B2B market with AR/VR solutions, Voblin AB will be working on the project into 2020. As more companies embrace VR for business solutions VRFocus will let you know.
