XRA Members Demo VR Training at Federal IT Emerging Tech Conference
The XR Association (XRA) hosted member companies Oberon Technologies and Friends with Holograms at the Government Information Technology Executive Council (GITEC) Emerging Technology Conference; the conference was supported by ATARC and held in Annapolis, MD.
The GITEC conference attracts top federal and state IT leaders to explore new and evolving technologies that are driving innovation in the public sector. XRA and ATARC partnered to provide conference attendees with the opportunity to experience and explore extended reality (XR).
Representatives from Oberon Technologies led conference attendees through virtual reality (VR)-based training experiences focused on safely working within hazardous and dangerous environments, industrial machinery and equipment, PPE protocols, and more to demonstrate the effectiveness of immersive technology or training efficiency.
Friends with Holograms provided a soft skills training session in VR to help managers and employees better understand workplace exclusion and unconscious bias.
