MOL Develops Mariner Safety Education Tool Using VR Goggles

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) today announced that it has developed a mariner safety education tool goggle, which uses virtual reality (VR) technology created by Tsumiki Seisaku Co., Ltd.

The tool relies on VR technology to replicate various training scenarios and work operations, until now a difficult task, offering a new level of realism and immersion. It works on easily portable VR goggles, which make it possible for seafarers to train safely regardless of location, onboard or in an office or training center.
