Researchers at TSSG’s augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) research group are working on creating a futuristic AR-based comms system that will transform how professionals industries such as construction and engineering work together.

Paul Cooke, a researcher at TSSG, explained: “We are the newest unit in TSSG and, for 12 months now, we have been working with a huge range of industry from architects, entertainment companies, insurance companies to transport hubs to see how augmented reality can enable them to be more effective.”

TSSG already has an impressive track record in AR and VR thanks to spin-outs such as Immersive VR Education, creators of breakthrough VR experiences focusing on Apollo 11 and Titanic.

Cooke said the team at TSSG wants to build on this heritage, but to do so through an industrial lens.
