Microsoft is already working with an esteemed client list to distribute its immersive solutions portfolio to suit a range of enterprise use cases. A range of partnerships come as the leading technology firm ramps up for the debut of its industrial Metaverse next year.
One of Microsoft’s XR clients is Nexco-East Engineering, which operates roughly 4,000km of all expressways in Japan. The firm recently deployed an immersive training application for ETC equipment and tunnel emergency facilities that leverage MR and digital twin technologies.
Currently, the region is facing an emerging social issue whereby Japan’s 10,000km of expressway is experiencing damages following more than 30 years of public use. This leads to Japanese expressways requiring extensive maintenance for road surfaces, bridges, and tunnels – according to Nexco-East.
At its Technical Training Center (TTC) located in Takasaki, Gunma, Nexco-East trainees can access the Microsoft-powered training service. The firm states that the training service equips every engineer with the necessary knowledge and skills to complete repair and maintenance tasks.
