While consumer sales remain low, industries from construction to medicine are usingthe technology to train for risky jobs.
JLG Industries, a unit of Oshkosh Corp., says VR is a safer and more efficient way to train operators of its boom lifts, who must learn to operate the vehicles from platforms extended up to 185 feet off the ground on giant arms. JLG’s training-system simulator, built by San Francisco-based ForgeFx Simulations, is networked so that multiple trainees across the globe can operate virtual machines in the same 3-D construction site—all without leaving the ground.

Industrial training simulators are entering a new era with virtual reality technology, helping companies save time and money, and mitigate risk.
When virtual reality enthusiasts talk about the technology’s ability to put a person in any experience imaginable, they’re not wrong. Experiences include just about anything someone could think up, from a music festival, to an alien planet that doesn’t exist, to something practical yet maybe unexpected—like the driver’s seat of an airplane de-icing rig. Industrial simulator maker ForgeFX is doing just that.

Training simulators continue to evolve.
As a weather-driven event, aircraft deicing allows for little practical training before operators are tested on the deicing pad. Evolving simulation technology has presented another training option. “We had a customer that required a simulator,” says Jeff Walsh, vice president of sales and service at Global Ground Support. “In order for us to bid on this large deicer purchase, we had to have a simulator.” The company set out to create its own simulator, working with ForgeFX Simulations, a software development company.
