UPS Will Be Training Drivers With Virtual Reality Headsets
Delivery & Logistics

UPS has begun using virtual reality headsets to train student delivery drivers at nine of its teaching facilities. The student drivers wear headsets that display a realistic 360-degree simulation of the world, complete with roads, parked cars and other objects. These simulations are designed to complement real-world UPS training programs.

Virtual reality headsets are gradually replacing the touchscreen devices that UPS has been using for driver training. VR training is becoming increasingly popular for companies, particularly in the health and medical fields, where it has been used for simulating surgeries and other procedures.
