Orbit Group has launched a new augmented reality digital safety tour, providing tenants with the very latest fire safety advice.
The augmented reality software has been sponsored by Orbit and developed by Firemark Education. The result is an interactive digital safety tour which takes the viewer through a virtual home, identifying the potential hazards and highlighting the fire safety features.
Paul Richards, group customer and communities director, Orbit Group, said, “Quite simply, this augmented reality safety tool has been designed to save lives. The software has been made to be user-friendly, easy to understand and incorporates lots of helpful tips on how to stay safe and when to let us know there may be a problem. The feedback we have received from customers has been extremely positive.”
The tour starts by introducing you to the tour guide (actually an Orbit employee) who presents each room in the property and provides useful fire safety information. Taking a room at a time, the viewer sees icons that highlight fire hazards, safety features and links to videos. Each icon is provided either as a voiceover or as written content.
The software has already been accessed by over 29,000 tenants; the tour can be viewed at firemark-education.co.uk/fireaware-3
