    An AR-based alarm system will make diving operations to recover wartime munitions much safer in future.

    A new research project has been launched to develop safety systems for divers tasked with salvaging wartime munitions that have been dumped at sea. Sensors alert the divers to acute levels of TNT and other hazardous substances, and an alarm system shows them the source of danger in real time by means of an augmented reality display inside their goggles.

    Machine@Hand 2.0 not only allows instructors to train users by means of VR, but also to create their own modules.

    Fraunhofer IGD of Rostock will be showcasing Machine@Hand 2.0, the beta version of its VR learning environment, at this year’s Hannover Messe. Machine@Hand 2.0 facilitates the creation of effective VR scenarios for training in the use of complex machinery, systems and technical processes. The VR learning environment is combined with an easy-to-use authoring tool. The VR modules can be readily integrated into existing LMS platforms and e-learning modules.
