Description

 

Over the last 15 months DVSA has explored the use of immersive technology to train its staff to test and inspect vehicles. At the heart of the exploration was a showcase that:
• used an Oculus Quest headset and a Unity based immersive solution to share 3D vehicle content,
• placed the user in a vehicle workshop, able to choose from 5 scenarios (different buses and trucks),
• presented the user with different wheels, tyres and hubs for each scenario,
• allowed the user to identify vehicle defects using a variety of tools and scored them on what they found.

Along with other work, the showcase has started a conversation in DVSA about the potential of immersive technology. This was reflected in the DVSA Annual Review (p21).
We have approval to broaden this exploration into other technologies and potential use cases in 2021/22. To achieve this, we will procure:
• a 360-degree video camera,
• a cloud based immersive platform,
• VR headsets to use with the immersive platform.
Our requirement is short term, and will help justify subsequent project work into immersive enterprise and technology decisions. Longer term commercial opportunities for immersive platform suppliers may result from this.

DVSA wants to explore the use of 360 degree video in creating a variety of engaging, immersive materials. This will help different parts of the organisation realise the potential of immersive technology to deliver better services.

So, the requirement is for an immersive platform solution that:

-> allows the import of 360-degree video (and other content)

-> enables non-technical professionals to easily create engaging materials based on the video

-> allows the immersive materials to be used on a variety of devices, locally or remotely

-> gives administrators the ability to grant access to single and multi-user sessions

-> includes cloud hosting

-> ensures privacy and security
