type of bus, such as an electric vehicle, or one with more complex wireless functionality. “While VR training content provides a consistent and


ideally enjoyable experience to all students, it does re- quire co-locating students in VR headset systems,” Attar commented. “This is achieved by either setting up sys- tems that are local to the driver trainee populations, or bringing such drivers to the location where the systems are set up.” Attar’s company targets this problem via a portable,


fully self-contained and easily setup collaborative VR system that can be easily shipped. Perhaps best of all, it requires minimal setup. For the large school bus manufacturers, the future of school bus transportation will very likely incorporate some degree of VR and AR training for new and exist- ing school bus drivers. “Using AR and VR can help us create a self-developing workforce, by filling in critical skill gaps in real time, superimposed over reality,” said


Blue Bird’s Dietrich. “Often, we spend too much time teaching technical training in the classroom, in front of a PowerPoint [presentation] or worse, gathering too many techs around a machine with little ability to get that much-needed hands-on [experience], to ensure that confidence and competence are gained prior to sending them off to work.” Dietrich added that AR and VR allow driver candidates to practice in a safe virtual environment before applying their skills on the road. “With that said, AR does not take the place of traditional learning,” she added. She also stressed that AR and VR actually enhance


traditional learning by super-imposing it over reality. “Using AR symbols throughout a training session, or allowing the learner to explore through a self-guided experience, adds a new dimension and elevates the learning experience,” Dietrich concluded. “I’ve been able to test some of these tools working virtually. I know this is the future of technical training.” ●
