Vobling AB, a wholly owned subsidiary of Bublar Group AB (publ) (BUBL MTF), a publicly listed Augmented Reality (AR) studio, has in collaboration with the Swedish railway operator SJ developed an educational Virtual Reality (VR) platform and learning experiences focused on the coming upgraded X2000 trains.
SJ has now assigned Vobling to further develop the VR platform and a number of new learning experiences covering multiple train models in its fleet. Using the VR platform, the intention is that employees will be educated in areas such as protocol-based routines, security procedures with scenario based training.
The assignment commences immediately and spans into early 2020. The project is one of Vobling’s most significant projects.
“We are setting up VR-stations across the country to make our VR-education accessible to our employees. Our goal is to utilize VR in a way that can increase the quality and effectiveness of our internal education”, says Claes Lindholtz, Director Business Development and Digital Transformation at SJ.
“This SJ-project is an important and strategic order for us and indicates that demand for AR/VR services is expanding. Specifically we see that SJ and other clients are seeking to develop scalable solutions that can increase operational productivity and efficiency. We are proud to join forces with SJ and to play a part in their mission to digitize and enhance learning and education targeting employees”, says Anders Ribbing, CEO Vobling.
