Design Interactive Inc., a provider of augmented and virtual reality-based fleet maintenance training solutions for the transportation industry, announced it is providing a mobile augmented reality game of the Technology & Maintenance Council’s National Technician Skills Competition, TMC SuperTech.
TMC is the technical council of American Trucking Associations.
Available on Android and Apple smartphones and tablets, Design Interactive’s TMC SuperTech skills challenge uses AR technology to project a fictional city with a fleet of moving trucks. As the vehicles require service, they are brought into a virtual garage where the game will ask users playing the role of a technician to execute tasks inspired by TMC SuperTech events. Points are awarded for the time trucks are repaired and for the longer they remain in service, according to the Orlando, Fla.-based company.
“We made the decision to create this game with Design Interactive for two primary reasons,” TMC Executive Director Robert Braswell said in a release. “First, to promote awareness of the vocation among middle and high school students who make up the next generation of vehicle maintenance personnel, and to help technicians prepare for the TMC SuperTech competition by providing a hands-on training experience for the skills challenges.”
TMC is seeking sponsors to help support the adoption of TMC SuperTech: The Game.
Design Interactive Inc. develops and deploys augmented, virtual and mixed reality training and enterprise offerings for the transportation, medical, aerospace, manufacturing, and energy/oil/gas markets as well the military. — Transport Topics
