We had the pleasure to have Mr. Horiwaki, Mr. Kono from Light & Co Ltd. and Mr. Shirai from Komatsu Ltd. as guests at our office in Umeå.
Light & Co. Ltd is appointed Import Agent for Komatsu Forest Simulators in Japan by Komatsu Ltd.
Forestry industry is facing major changes and challenges in Japan due generation shift and mechanization improvements.
Japanese government is investing heavily in establishing new Vocational Schools in order to educate new generation of Forestry workforce.
Komatsu Forest Simulators represent a proven and powerful tool for Operator Training and many Institutes in Japan are interested in our technology and Light & Co. does have already delivered one portable unit – Komatsu Forest 40 – to Ehime Prefecture.
For more information about Komatsu Forest Simulators, you can contact Francesco Pietroni, email@example.com
Volvo Construction Equipment together with Oryx Simulations have presented a brand new simulation software where the Volvo real time simulators interact. The goal is to be able to set up complete worksites and get live productivity data based on machine and operator performance.
If you plan to visit ConExpo in Las Vegas, March 7-11, 2017, we will be there.
Umeå Insitute of Design is a world-leading school educating talented designers and preparing them for their future careers in industrial design.
Oryx has donated VR equipment to the school and helping them with harnessing and using the new technology in their education. Umeå is a region of many innovative and inspiring schools and businesses and to further strengthen the regions position internationally we need to help each other out as much as we can.
On this side the plan is to connect the graphics card to a virtual reality headset we have recently acquired. Such equipment will be fully available to the students and we imagine to see all kinds of use, from the basic evaluation of human factors (ergonomics), form and aesthetics when working with 3D digital models to a more experimental approach combining fully immersive environments. With a VR setup we believe students will get new possibilities to make informed decisions during the creative process. They can effectively simulate the context of use of their design solutions and that is a significant advantage in the process. VR technology is developing fast and we are happy to provide the students with the experience of important tools that will be needed in their future work place.
