In collaboration with the University of Hong Kong, LSCM developed a virtual reality (VR) training system which allows users to conduct training in a fully immersive CAVE-like VR environment.This VR Training System for Hong Kong professionals gives users the opportunity to experience the life-like scenarios of complex operations and interact dynamically with such an environment in a controlled space. Activities are recorded, and behaviour is analysed as it develops in real-time.
It delivers a novel and cost-effective solution for the training and evaluation of professionals in decision making and high-order skills.
Logistics and Supply Chain MultiTech R&D Centre (LSCM) was founded in 2006, with funding from the Innovation and Technology Fund of The Government of the Hong Kong SAR, and is co-hosted by the University of Hong Kong, the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
