EON REALITY: Virtual and Augmented Reality Based Knowledge Transfer
For EON it was not just training the students in AVR, but creating the man power for Singapore’s economic growth,” says Sridhar Sunkad, Managing Director of EON Reality, referring to the Augmented Virtual Reality (AVR) establishment made by EON Reality at the academic institutions like Temasek Polytenchinc (TP) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Singapore. Partnered with TP, EON Reality reached out to 200 students and empowered them to take up AVR as a part of their engineering subject or as a standalone diploma. Today, several universities are in cahoots with EON Reality in adapting AVR to their curriculum to not only strengthen the academic value but also to train the youth in prospects of AVR for skills transfer.
EON Reality is diversified into education, energy, healthcare, defense, manufacturing, and aerospace sectors while being classified into three verticals that are subjective of the usage. On platforms ranging from smartphones to full-fledged AVR rigs, the company provides development tools, AVR software, and suites for organizations seeking training methodologies to reach out to the workforce across the seas in the form AR and VR content. Personal systems such as EON Mobile and EON Idesk target the single user interface keeping the smartphone compatibility in mind. Group systems namely EON Artificial I, EON Interactive Mirror, EON I Cube cater to a multi-user interface. Immersive systems, the software perfected for the flagship spectrum, offers a more enticing AVR experience for broader applications.
The company is spearheading the AVR industry by employing content delivery techniques that surpass the conventional 2D approach. Changi airport in Singapore has adopted the AVR suites offered by EON Reality for the training of their employees. Boeing and Rolls Royce are few of the companies which have taken similar strides in using these AVR suites for aeronautical and aerospace applications and are clients of the company ever since. “The effectiveness of a three-dimensional simulation is unparalleled by the conventional modes of training for its relatability to real life scenarios,” adds Sunkad.

For instance, few organizations in Qatar require a trained workforce for their operational domain. It becomes tedious for the organizations to have the employees relocate before being deployed for work. EON Reality partnering with Exxon Mobil, have set up virtual workstations for the training of employees from their native location. “We ensured that the workforce is trained on AVR software for future applications, enabling them to be educationists with the scope of the organizations. This advancement has contributed to the 18 million shortages of teachers worldwide,” says Sunkad.
Catering to 3.8 billion people, EON Reality plans on expanding towards developing nations seeking skilled workforce and quality education. Joining hands with the National Skill Development council, Ministry of India, EON Reality is targeting 500 million students and trainees for augmented reality training programs. The company believes in faster and efficient knowledge transfer and hopes to create a plethora of job opportunities by embracing the potentiality of AVR. “We are bringing together, augmented reality, virtual reality and IoT to enable workers in the industrial sector to be smarter. In the future, AVR, IoT, and AI will come together to propel human-computer interaction for technological empowerment and the benefit of the world,” Sridhar concludes.
