The client

The Hessische Landesfeuerwehrschule (HLFS) is the central training and further education institution for fire protection and general assistance in Hesse. The origins of the modern educational institution, which is located in Kassel, date back to 1933.

Therefore, the HLFS has decades of experience in the education, training and development of members of the fire departments, relief organizations and civil protection. The knowledge acquired at the HLFS will later help the participants to cope with their responsible activities as full-time or volunteer emergency personnel.

The question

As part of a digitization project of the HLFS and the state of Hesse, all counties, independent cities and special state cities were to be equipped with VR hardware. These devices should be used for education and training purposes together with the software 3DVista.

Accordingly, HLFS was looking for a reliable hardware expert who could advise the educational institution on the use of VR devices together with 3DVista.

The supplier needed to be able to act responsively and then ship the VR devices to the sites in Hesse. 

HLFS was looking for a complete package of hardware and support so that the various fire departments would always have a point of contact for any questions that arose.

The solution

HLFS contacted VR Expert and asked for help in managing the digitization project. After in-depth consultation, VR Expert provided HLFS with several test devices from different manufacturers. These were intensively tested by the educational institution and their benefits were analyzed.

After several evaluation meetings, together with VR Expert, it was decided to select the Pico Neo 3 Pro as the VR device for the rollout. The stand-alone 6DoF device is ideally suited for training and education scenarios due to its user-friendliness and the openness of the operating system.

VR Expert then took over the pre-installation of the 3DVista software and the video content of the HLFS, as well as the shipment of a total of over 150 VR devices to more than 30 fire departments throughout Hesse. 

Even after the shipment of the hardware, VR Expert is available to the fire departments with its hardware support and helps with the challenges around the implementation of the VR devices.
