DHI Eyes On Habitat VR Training

Eyes on Habitat: Coral Reefs is a unique training tool that features the coral reefs at Sisters’ Islands Marine Park, in an interactive VR underwater simulation. It enhances the training of marine biologists and reefs monitoring volunteers, as they learn methods in the assessment and monitoring of coral reefs, orientate themselves on monitoring protocols and practice their identification skills in a virtual setting before they embark on actual dives. Unlike in an underwater scenario, with Eyes on Habitat, instructors are able to virtually and verbally guide trainees through coral reef monitoring skills and trainee responses can be tallied in real-time using Hiverlab’s proprietary multi-user immersive presentation and communication system Storyhive. During the ‘dive’, they will be guided to identify the various marine organisms along the reef and input their responses using their VR headsets. The initiative was featured by mainstream media, such as The Straits Times, Channel News Asia and Underwater 360.
