On August 22, SimInsights successfully demonstrated the Robotic Technician Assessment Simulation to Chike Aguh, Chief Innovation Officer for the US Department of Labor at an event held at the Block Center atCarnegie Mellon University Campus in Pittsburgh, PA
Funded by the Department of Defense’s Manufacturing Technology program, this Virtual Reality Assessment allows manufacturing employees to assess their robotic and automation knowledge & skills without the need for using actual equipment. Robotic technicians are responsible for the maintenance of robots operating on the factory floor. This simulation was developed in collaboration with ARM Institute and APT Manufacturing.
