The use of VR-technology has gone from solely creating trilling enthusiasm to be an important tool for companies all over the world. And, the introduction of relevant content, in addition to the stunning realism, have rocketed the development of VR-simulators.

Morild Interaktiv developed the worlds first VR-ship simulator in 2013 for Rolls-Royce Marine, and have the last years delivered a range of simulators for the maritime industry. Development in technology combined with better interaction solutions and focus on quality content – have opened a whole new market for VR-based simulators for training and product demonstration.

Low cost compared to conventional simulators, and given the mobility of VR solutions means companies now can introduce simulators to a wider range of products. The most obvious areas of use are familiarisation, scenario- and product training, but we also experience that a simulator delivered with the product gives our customers unique advantages in sales.

There is also a growing trend in using VR-simulator technology in developing assembly and operation instructions. Many companies have operators in all corners of the world, and VR is a perfect tool to demonstrate how products are assembled and operated. It’s a fact that learning by seeing and doing are much more effective than reading instruction manuals.

Morild Interaktiv is presently working with VR-simulators for subsea winch operation, lifeboat operation and ship navigation. We look forward to show you all some examples 😊.
