The Future of Training - Digital Catapult showcase SmartDS

London’s Digital Catapult kicked off their 3 month immersive tech training showcase last week.

SmartDS were one of six companies selected from 90 applications to be included in this UK wide technology accelerator programme.

120 delegates from training organisations in healthcare, defense, manufacturing and the creative industries were able to learn, demo and share holographic training experiences - many, for the first time.

What do engineers want?

SmartDS were featured at the Advanced Engineering Expo in Birmingham last week.

We met with engineers from across the world and demoed Mixed Reality training using Microsoft HoloLens.

From our discussion we found the challenges they have are:

 1) Training - new products, new  processes & inspection,

2) Product design - testing, fault finding, communicating,

3) Sales/marketing - showing complex products, processes,

4) Speed of change - Brexit, lack of engineers, move to iot, industry 4.0, rapid advances in technologies, complexity of client requirements.

If this sounds like your organisation, and you’d like to hear how holographic training experiences can help your engineering organisation, please contact us.
