NORCAT unveils new technologies to support the future of work and learning in mining

Over the past three years, NORCAT has engaged multiple stakeholders in the global mining industry to better understand the future of work and learning and how technology will support training and development to ensure mine workers are both safe and productive while on the job.   The launch will feature NORCAT’s augmented reality (AR) firefighting training simulator and a demonstration of NORCAT’s virtual reality (VR) induction training program for both surface and underground mining operations.
