Dear Friend,

VR Survey Results are in!

Mobile Crane Operator Virtual Reality Simulator Survey Results

76% of Survey Respondents Look Favorably on VR Use for Crane Training

Virtual reality (VR) is a computer-generated perspective that allows the user to experience an altered reality environment. The latest generation of VR headsets fit around the user's head and over their eyes, visually separating him or her from whatever space they are physically occupying. Images make up the simulated reality and are feed to the user using two small lenses. Through VR headset, a user can virtually climb Mt. Everest, experience the view from the top of the Eiffel Tower, explore the Amazon or experience a movie as one of the main characters. 


With the possibilities of VR being endless, ITI launched a survey at the end of June to learn more about the potential of VR simulator use in the crane and rigging industry as a training tool. The survey launched at the end of June 2016, and closed Friday, July 15, with more than 600 individuals completing the survey. Every completed survey submission is automatically entered to win an Apple Watch or an Amazon Echo. Winners will be announced on Friday, July 22.

The survey methodology, findings and complete results are available here.
