A forklift simulator for the 21st century
Created a proof of concept prototype to show the efficacy of VR and prove value to the client
Crafted a custom lesson plan and VR interface that could train a novice operator to the point of mastery
From one lesson on one forklift model, we expanded the product to cover Raymond’s full product line across 12 different models as a tiered offering within an iterative process
Created a fully comprehensive training simulator with custom hardware that incorporates actual controls from Raymond Forklifts
Integrated with HTC Vive and Leap Motion hardware for full spatial and hand tracking, adding to immersion and accessibility
The initial program currently includes simulations for six (6) different models, presenting five (5) individual courses and incorporating 60+ lessons
“In my 30 years of training I’ve never had an employee ask to do it again. Until Now.”
The project won Raymond the MHI Innovation Award for 2018.
Raymond is now selling this forklift simulator as a stand-alone product.
Raymond is now looking into AR for their maintenance applications. XR has become a clear value for their bottom line.
The training is so fun that people want to repeat it. Virtually unheard of in the training industry.
