At Robocognito, our motto is VR for good. We make custom experiences and games in virtual reality used for education, outreach and training. These applications could be for schools or post-secondary education, nonprofits, apprenticeship programs, organizations providing continuing education or improved customer service. How can we help you?
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ National Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, electrical power-line work, which include journeymen linemen, is among the top 10 deadliest professions in the United States. An accident that happens as a high voltage journeyman lineman is life threatening and severe. Training is paramount to ensuring worker safety. Simulation in virtual reality can help.
Robocognito submitted a proposal for HTC’s VR for Impact project, and we are excited to have been invited to provide more information for second-round consideration!
Highwire is a VR training simulation that allows high school students to get a glimpse of what it is like to be a high-voltage journeyman lineman, working six stories off the ground to repair damaged electrical lines and restore power to nearby communities.
