SAMWOO Immersion is a company with various solutions and technologies such as VR platform, tactical training simulator, GIS based situation control platform.
Since its establishment in 2011, the company has been consistently recognized for its technological prowess, including the certification of venture companies, certification of innovative SMEs, certification of outstanding companies in Busan, and certification of leading companies.
SAMWOO Immersion recently focused on VR and AR. Based on SAMWOO Immersion’s unique solutions, the company is committed to contributing to the creation of smart factories beyond the existing marine and marine sectors. SAMWOO Immersion was also designated as a smart factory supplier.
VR and AR are world-renowned technologies. VR stands for Virtual Reality, a technology that allows people to have a realistic experience in a virtual world made of computers. It is often called virtual reality. AR stands for Augmented Reality. It is a technology that adds additional information in real time to images viewed through the device. Virtualize only the information added based on reality. Pokemon GO, which once plunged the world into Pokemon hunting, including Korea, is a representative game using AR.
SAMWOO Immersion Kim Dae-hee said, “Pokemon GO and other games are only part of VR and AR. VR and AR are more necessary in the industrial field. ” This is because VR and AR can be more positive in the industrial field.
He introduced an immersive training solution. SAMWOO Immersion already has various VR training systems. One of the programs that can be utilized in industrial sites is ‘Safe Accident Response (SAR) industrial site safety training’. The situation of industrial sites such as airtight work and sue work was built in virtual reality. In addition, VR environment was established for lathe training and elevator training. In addition, it has a SAR container terminal safety response training program that has established various safety-related cases such as fire and accidents, a SAR port safety response VR simulator, SAR MEP, SAR MSP, and marine police accident response training system.
Kim said, “VR training has a big advantage. This is because the risk of training is greatly reduced. This is because they do not utilize actual machines or equipment. “It’s a great educational experience because it’s not just a video or visual, it’s a hands-on experience.”
In addition, training with VR also impacts corporate productivity. In the industrial field, most skilled workers are responsible for the training of the unskilled. The labor force of skilled workers is difficult to put into production completely. As a result, labor productivity naturally falls. Dae-Hee Kim said, “VR has the advantage of being able to experience the same experience based on interaction.” “Using VR, the labor force of skilled workers does not have to be put into education. There are many advantages for the company. ”
The same is true for AR. Kim said, “The biggest advantage of AR is that we can gather information and show it at once. Monitoring of industrial sites can also be implemented with additional information. Pokemon GO is fun, of course, but (Laughter) AR is actually more industrial. “AR is the best tool for providing a mixture of visual information.”
SAMWOO Immersion also has various smart factory solutions using ICT. Kim said, “We also built a sample factory for university education. The key is to help with remote operations. ” “In the field, workers often work with various devices, such as drawings and mobile phones, in their hands. The problem is that hands are not free and various problems occur. ”“ We implemented hands-free AR tools using AR technology based on voice recognition. ”
How to wear is simple. All you have to do with your helmet is a device that includes a variety of features such as a microphone, speaker, display and camera. On the other hand, the use is colorful. It can be used in various industrial sites such as construction, maintenance, and education as well as smart factories. In particular, it is possible to implement a remote mentor solution. It includes microphones, speakers, and high-performance HD cameras to help you communicate in real time. It is also waterproof and dustproof so it can be used in various industrial sites.
Representative Kim said, “Using QR Code, you can check various information such as device information in real time. It can be applied to various fields regardless of the factory type. In addition, hands are free and communication functions are provided so that the inexperienced person can be instructed by the expert in monitoring. It is also possible to connect domestic engineers with overseas workers. ”
Dae-hee Kim emphasized that Smart Factory has various advantages. But at the same time expressed regret. “We’ve been designated as a smart factory supplier, but in reality, there aren’t many demanding companies. Most of the introduction of smart factories is in the 12th stage. However, our technology is often used in three or more stages, ”he said.“ In factories with a lot of simple repetitive tasks, VR and AR will not really come into contact. It is not easy to apply our solution without the 12 steps of Smart Factory. ”
Yet, “VR and AR have great advantages. As the Smart Factory transition phase evolves, more and more companies will apply our technology. VR and AR are essential, especially where there is a lot of dangerous work. ”
“We will use cloud services to provide solutions in a monthly basis so that users do not feel burdened. Various solutions have already been configured for various consumers, and various problems such as security have already been solved. The goal is to create 1,000 ecosystems by next year and create one ecosystem in its own way. ”
What I felt as a smart factory supplier became another goal of SAMWOO Immersion. Kim Dae-hee expressed his desire to grow SAMWOO Immersion into a company that looks beyond the Busan and South Korea where the company is located.
Kim said, “Our character is not limited to“ smart factory suppliers. ”“ In Busan, where our head office is located, the industrial structure is rather complicated. However, as a company with various solutions in the VR and AR industries, the goal is to grow SAMWOO Immersion into a true IT company. One of the products is to achieve the world’s number one share. We will show you the technological advancement by utilizing effective solutions that are located locally. Please watch for the development and growth of SAMWOO Immersion. ”
