Rethinking teaching and learning methods through technology is already bringing benefits to the education industry. VR programmes are redefining the classroom, connecting experts and students across the world like never before, and delivering unforgettable lessons. Workplace training has become far more hands-on and effective, resulting in improved performance and safety.
Technology supported by Standards
VR displays follow the technology of smartphones. The hardware is comprised of gyroscopes and motion sensors for tracking body, hand and head positions, small screen displays and fast processors. Headsets continue to advance, thanks to 360-degree cameras, which can produce VR images and video in all directions.
A number of IEC technical committees (TCs) and their subcommittees (SCs) produce International Standards and have testing systems which help ensure the reliability, safety, efficiency, interoperability and quality of the components within this technology.
Using VR as a learning tool is cost-effective, safe and efficient and can be applied to many situations, including training emergency responders, surgeons and students.
