Hitachi, Immersive Technologies Renew Partnership

Hitachi Construction Machinery Co. Ltd (HCM) renewed its exclusive partnership agreement with Immersive Technologies to provide it with continued access to HCM's proprietary engineering information and engineering staff. This will facilitate the ongoing development and support of the mining industries’ leading range of advanced equipment simulators, which are designed by Immersive for equipment operator training and workforce development.

Essential training feedback will be provided to HCM by Immersive Technologies representing general operator behavior. This will be utilized by HCM for development, improvement, troubleshooting, etc. of the actual mining equipment. This feedback will take the form of aggregated data extracted from Immersive Technologies’ Global Operator Benchmarking System, a proprietary tool which contains performance data collected from over 46,000 mining equipment operators from around the world.
