Industrial Training International (iti.com), is now accepting applications for its Virtual Reality (VR) Mobile Crane Simulator Beta Program. The simulator is on target for a March 2017 release date, with the official unveiling at CONEXPO (http://conexpoconagg.com/), in Las Vegas. Beta Program applicants have the opportunity to gain immediate access to the Simulator through the development process with a hardware deposit and will be in the reservation queue when the final version is ready in early 2017.
Beta Program applicants will receive the hardware and software needed to run all available course simulations including:
- A high-powered laptop
- An Oculus Rift Headset
- Xbox Controller
- Simulation Library Package
“We’ve tried to answer customer requests with this initiative. This Beta Program will allow interested customers to access our simulator throughout the development process prior to receiving their final crane controls and the full library of courses,” commented E-Learning Specialist and ITI VR Project Manager, Caleb Steinborn.
Although standard reservations can be placed for both the Desktop and Motion-Base Mobile Crane Simulators with a $1,000 deposit, these reservations will not be fulfilled until early 2017. Beta Program applicants essentially purchase the available hardware and course library at-cost ($3,500) and are able to gain a 20% discount on the Desktop version and/or a 10% discount on the Motion-Base version when the final joysticks and hardware becomes available.
Beta Program applicants may return their hardware purchase for a 75% refund after the equipment is returned to ITI, and ITI validates that it can successfully refurbish the hardware for future use.
