The skills that one requires through practical learning can be done through virtual reality. For instance, if one needs to learn driver training they do not need to go on the steering wheel directly hitting the roads they can learn online with the same experience as that of the real time traffic, environmental conditions and other factors affecting. Illustrating the actual process is what is done through simulators.
The knowledge absorbed during the process of learning through a research simulator is more than learning notes or just reading about it. It increases the flexibility of learning and the experience of learning on the machine is much better and greater when it comes to mining heavy equipment operator training.
Learning through simulators is extremely cost effective.
Less human errors which in turn increases the efficiency.
It helps motivates the trainees as there is no physical damage done while learning
It is safer than actually learning on the ground, as the accidents are avoided.
It is safer and more effective
The time required during the learning process is lesser
The initial cost of installing the simulator is high
The maintenance of the simulators can charge a lot if it breaks down.
If the students have questions outside of what is installed, they cannot be answered instantly and will have to check with a trainer.
It limits the access to only what is available through simulators
The updating of the software is not very cost effective
Depending on machines is not a very good aspect
Even though usage of virtual reality and simulators have several advantages it does have certain major disadvantages which can affect a company.
