Simulators have played a part in the training and development of seafarers since the 1950s, however, in recent years there has been a popular demand to incorporate more simulation based technologies into maritime programs. Due to the rise of COVID, many companies have sought new ways of being able to adequately train crew members from remote locations. As a result, the market demand for simulation technologies is at an all time high, with numerous companies beginning to change how we teach. However, there is still a cause for concern within the maritime industry, with much research being conducted on the use of stand-alone simulations, proving to benefit the user, little research has been conducted on the use of VR/AR simulations and the benefits which this may have to the user.
How is simulation used in maritime training today?
Technology is forever changing and adapting how we learn and the maritime industry is no exception. The demand for maritime simulation technology is at an all time high, caused by the ever growing need to keep up to date with technology. In recent years, simulation has proven to be a modern way to gain competence, beginning with what was once basic navigation but now covering every aspect of onboard operations. The need to keep up with technical changes has forced maritime simulation to rapidly improve in recent years. Modern simulators cover everything from simple reproductions on a computer screen to fully immersive experiences.
