Challenge

The Emerging Skills Project is providing cutting-edge training focussed on addressing the future skills gaps in manufacturing and the wider engineering workforce. In developing the course content, the team wanted to explore how immersive technologies could be applied to enhance learning outcomes.

Solution

We created an AR app that enables learners to practice assembling and disassembling an EV battery, motor and connector using interactive 3D digital twins. This solution includes a drag-and-drop toolbox, as well as text-to-speech functionality.

This project has enabled us to use the latest technology to provide as much ‘hands on experience’ to learners without any risk of safety critical issues.
