HD Hyundai Construction Equipment has opened the doors to an innovative training center that utilizes virtual reality (VR) and digital twin technology for excavator operation instruction and product verification.
The grand opening of the “Virtual Training Center” took place at the HD Hyundai Global R&D Center (GRC) in Pangyo, Gyeonggi Province, on January 23, with executives Cho Young-cheul and Lee Dong-wook in attendance, among others.
The center is equipped with 15 RC models of excavators, incorporating the actual operational principles of construction equipment. It features a scaled-down indoor training area replicating real worksites at a 1:14 ratio, a VR experience zone inside an excavator cabin, and a remote-control station for construction equipment.
HD Hyundai XiteSolution mentioned that wearing VR goggles in the indoor training area allows operators to drive RC models with a view identical to that from the cockpit of real machinery, offering an indirect field experience.
