Niklas Elmqvist co-PI on a $3M NSF Convergence Accelerator grant to develop new workforce training using augmented and virtual reality  

Niklas Elmqvist is co-PI on a $3M NSF Convergence Accelerator grant led by Karthik Ramani (the Donald W. Feddersen Distinguished Professor in Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University). This project aims to develop new workforce training using augmented and virtual reality. 

This project, SkillXR, will focus on the manufacturing industry, which traditionally has had low-tech employee training methods (in-person teaching sessions, manuals, videos), and has been faced with an increasing skills gap. The SkillXR project will create a prototype AR/VR training experience.
