Augmented Reality Technology for AMAC

February 23, 2017

AMAC main shop floor. Engineering machines and computer station.

Training 2000’s Advanced Manufacturing & Automation Centre (AMAC) is utilising augmented reality technology to enhance the learning experience and bring the innovative technology into manufacturing.

Utilising an application which can be installed onto any phone or tablet device, learners can use real life triggers to access learning slides, link to websites and product datasheets – which could relate to specific activities, tools or equipment.

This will allow the centre’s technical trainers to set tasks and activities in an interactive way – including through the use of video and audio.

Viewing the AMAC through a smart phone or tablet device highlights where the opportunities to interact are – meaning that the pioneering technology hosted within the £1.2 facility is brought further to life.

All this furthers the aims of the centre, to build the skills of the workforce and businesses across the region.

The technology was recently demonstrated at Training 2000’s February open evenings – where the apprentices of the future had the chance to see the Advanced Manufacturing & Automation Centre fully operational and talk to the trainers that run it.

The centre will also be hosting selection for WorldSkills competitors ahead of Abu Dhabi 2017.
