Bublar Group expands Virtual Reality Training with the Norwegian Railway Operator, Vy

Vobling AB, subsidiary of the Nordic XR leader Bublar Group (BUBL MTF), has initiated a new partnership with the international railway operator, VY, (former Norske Statsbaner, NSB) based in Norway. The VY Group is one of the largest transport groups in the Nordic countries.

Vobling has been assigned by VY to develop a Fire Fighting simulator in Virtual Reality (VR), aimed to be used as an educational tool for staff training. The simulator will be run with HTC Vive Pro Eye and can in a future road map come to apply a more platform agnostic approach where both stand-alone VR headsets, 2D screens, augmented reality and other mediums come into play.

“We are really excited about this project and our new client relationship with VY. During the last couple of years we’ve developed state of the art virtual training and education applications targeting staff. The Fire Fighting simulator is a natural extension in line with our strategy and it’s very exciting that we are broadening our geographical footprint to Norway”, says Anders Ribbing, CEO of Vobling AB.

“The VR-technology gives as an extraordinary way to simulate different scenarios and train our personnel in a safe and scalable environment. The training system will use object tracking and replicate fire, smoke, oxygen- and temperature levels in a realistic fashion which gives a new and powerful tool in our safety training procedures. The end game for this application is about saving lives – what could be more important than that”, says Ole Johnny Haugen, Head of Development at Vy Competence Center.
