This agreement will continue to promote the VR revolution in fleet driver training, using the total immersion of Virtual Reality.
VR Motion has defined the Virtual Reality Driving Simulator with a new level of realism. This will allow Tata and other OEM manufacturers, dealers and other fleet users of all types to practice, learn, and operate multiple specific vehicles, particularly delivery vehicles and other high-risk driving environments.
