Youth enrolling for skills training as part of the Skill India mission may soon learn to use high-end machines through augmented reality and virtual reality.
The ministry of skill development and entrepreneurship, led by Rajiv Pratap Rudy, is planning to rope in EON Reality, a US-based company, to bring this new technology for traning to India in association with the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC).
he technology could be first demonstrated in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's home state of Gujarat during the Vibrant Gujarat investor summit in January 2017.
Also, the first augmented reality-based skill training centre could come up at IIT (BHU) in Varanasi, the Prime Minister’s parliamentary constituency, signalling the focussed approach of the government towards the Prime Minister’s pet project the Skill India mission.
Manish Kumar, CEO of National Skill Development Mission, told ET that augmented and virtual reality could be path-breaking in India where there is huge shortage of trainers and skill-seekers are often deprived of training on highend machines.
EON Reality is an international leader in virtual and augmented reality-based knowledge transfer for industry, education and edutainment sectors. Virtual reality technology facilitates the creation of real-life simulations and provides an immersive experience for users.
Augmented reality, on the other hand, layers digital enhancements to enrich an existing real life setting by appealing to the senses.
