【VR新“玩儿法”:培养“老司机”】UPS将从9月开始用VR技术培训驾驶UPS货车的司机,VR头盔将取代目前UPS培训计划中使用的平面显示器触摸屏设备,通过VR技术虚拟出场景(包括行人和车辆),训练司机对于路面突发情况的应对能力,有助于帮助司机获得更真实的体验,从而提高培训效果。 http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4793058/UPS-develops-VR-tech-train-delivery-drivers.html

UPS set to begin VR training program to prepare drivers for hazards on the road

  • Starting in September, UPS will train package delivery drivers using VR 
  • The module will simulate hazards, including pedestrians and incoming traffic
  • The company may expand the VR training to tractor trailer drivers in the future 
UPS is turning to virtual reality to train drivers. Starting in September, the delivery company will begin training employees who drive package delivery trucks with virtual reality modules, which it developed to simulate potential driving hazards on city streets. The VR training will replace the touchscreen training devices the company currently uses. Scroll down for video

Every day, 100,000 UPS vehicles are on roads around the world. 'Virtual Reality offers a big technological leap in the realm of driver safety training,' said Juan Perez, UPS chief information and engineering officer. 'VR creates a hyper-realistic streetscape that will dazzle even the youngest of our drivers whose previous exposure to the technology was through video games.'   UPS IT experts created the training modules, which give a 360-degree view of a city to simulate driving conditions. Incoming drivers will view and hear the program through an HTC Vive VR headset and will be tasked with verbally identifying potential road hazards such as pedestrians, parked cars and oncoming traffic. In a video demonstrating the technique, a student completing the simulation is shown looking both ways while at an intersection, saying 'right clear' and 'left clear' out loud to verbally assess the road conditions.

UPS DRIVER TRAINING

UPS is replacing the first step in its three-step driver training course with VR. Now instead of a 2D touchscreen demonstration, drivers will use VR headsets to be immersed in a replica cityscape developed to simulate potential driving hazards on city streets. Drivers will be tasked with verbally identify potential road hazards such as pedestrians, parked cars and oncoming traffic. In a video demonstrating the video, a student completing the simulation is shown looking both ways while at an intersection, saying 'right clear' and 'left clear' out loud to verbally assess the road conditions.
n another take, a driver-in-training sees a car in his path and says 'left hazard.'  The VR training will be done at the company's nine UPS Integrad facilities in the US, where drivers are also trained in a replica outdoor city that has real streets and sidewalks and simulated delivery and pickup sites. Then drivers will complete more intensive on-road training before officially hitting the streets to deliver packages. Nearly 9,000 drivers have graduated from UPS Integrad locations since 2007.

In another take, a driver-in-training sees a car in his path and says 'left hazard.' For now, the training will only be used for drivers who operate package delivery trucks, although UPS may expand it as a requirement for tractor trailer drivers as well. The VR training will be done at the company's nine UPS Integrad facilities in the US, where drivers are also trained in a replica outdoor city that has real streets and sidewalks and simulated delivery and pickup sites. The first of these facilities opened in Landover, Maryland in 2007 with the philosophy 'Teach me. Show me. Let me,' first training drivers at the facility before more intensive on-road training. Nearly 9,000 drivers have graduated from UPS Integrad locations since 2007. 'This training is foundational, and Virtual Reality brings it to life,' said Jeanne Lawrence, UPS Integrad expansion director. '

'VR complements real-world training in a way that deeply engages our employees in the UPS Integrad curriculum.' The company is touting the new program as part of its commitment 'to protect its on-road employees and the communities they serve.' UPS - which is the world's largest package delivery company and a provider of supply chain management solutions - recognizes safe drivers who haven't had an avoidable accident in 25 years by introducing them into its Circle of Honor. The 'elite' group consists of over 9,000 drivers - about 10 percent of the full driver workforce.
