VR THINKING

The Centre for Advanced Training Systems (ATS) has a strong research focus, which is applied to all aspects of our activities.

Our research approach is integrated into all phases of project development, from initial project conception through to resource delivery.

At ATS we endeavour to push the boundaries on the applications of VR Technology and how it is applied to training and workplace culture.

Take a look at our recent blog posts, snippets of the Center in the media and our VR thinking.
