Coming Soon – TRANSCAER® developing VR experience for first responders
April 02, 2020
Development is well underway on a new virtual reality (VR) experience of the CCPX 911 safety training tank car. This VR experience is designed to provide first responders familiarization and awareness with railway equipment, emergency response and safety procedures, and the transportation of dangerous goods.
Developed in partnership with CIAC members and partners, the Railway Association of Canada and Transport Canada under the Rail Safety Improvement Program (RSIP) the VR experience will deliver more interactive training at conferences and outreach events where the presence of an actual tank car would be difficult or impractical. The tour will also be made available online for all users to access on demand. This is the first component of the exciting projects we have planned through this RSIP partnership. So, stay tuned and look for the virtual reality training at our next TRANSCAER event or online soon!
