Global Virtual Training and Simulation Market: Snapshot

The use of virtual training and simulation is gaining increased attention in a number of application areas, one of the notable being training autonomous drones, robots, or gadgets that move on their own. Testing or training drones, robots, and other self-navigating devices in a virtual scenario is gaining increased popularity from manufacturers and researchers owing to the vastly affordable nature of simulated training. Manual testing or training of these devices is either impossible due to several regulatory restrictions, highly expensive when possible, and extremely resource-intensive.

As such devices become common in the present-day, highly digitized world, ways of making their operations accurate are always sought. One of the key areas of training self-navigating devices is to program these device to distinguish between things like solid objects and shadows and dark-colored walls. Training devices in these areas with the help of simulation software or in virtual settings could help researchers avoid some very expensive failures.

The increased realization of this promising area of application has compelled many companies to come up with virtual training and simulation software specifically suiting self-navigating devices. Recently, Microsoft introduced a beta version of an advanced virtual reality program for autonomous drones and other varieties of self-navigating devices.

The program could help self-navigating devices to learn to be more comfortable and accurate while navigating through real-world situations, without actually risking real world objects while learning to do so. Looking at the large number of self-navigating devices being put to use in industries and the public sector, this area of application could open up vast growth opportunities for players in the virtual training and simulation market in the near future.
