The City of Los Angeles is responsible for the testing of truck drivers in order to qualify for many different job positions. These tests take a lot of time and resources including getting vehicles from the garage to a test site. The tests need to be scheduled for specific days at physical testing locations in order to test large groups all at once for efficiency. The virtual exam also allows for more efficient grading since it is captured on video for centralized scoring at any time.
Our team worked with the City of LA to build a virtual reality(VR) experience that allows them to more easily test truck drivers on a range of different pre-trip vehicle inspection points. A virtual reality experience minimizes costs and resources associated with testing. With a VR headset, the tests could be conducted anywhere and do not need to be scheduled for only large groups of applicants.
Saritasa worked with the City of LA to create a proof of concept of the pre-trip vehicle inspection to help prove how virtual reality can be used as an innovative and efficient assessment tool.
