■Comment from Yutaka Seto, Representative Director of Sinfonia Co., Ltd.
Thank you very much for allowing me to receive such a prestigious award.
Looking back, three years ago, when I exhibited for the first time at an industrial exchange exhibition, the small mobile crane VR training system was still a prototype, and I remember leaving the industrial exchange exhibition with a frustrated feeling that it barely moved. increase.
It’s been three years, but I’m really happy to receive such an award at the same industry exchange exhibition as that time.
We would like to continue to develop various contents centered on VR training and contribute to everyone’s life.
I’m really thankful to you.

Overview of small mobile crane training VR system
This is Japan’s first VR system for training dedicated to small mobile cranes. The operation environment of a small mobile crane is faithfully reproduced, and realistic operation environments such as realistic 3DCG expressions and physics simulations such as gravity and collisions are reproduced.
It is ideal for training those who want to obtain a license for small mobile cranes, and for those who collect it, and because it is a VR system, it is possible to conduct training without the possibility of causing accidents or injuries.
It not only faithfully reproduces basic crane operations and test courses, but also offers training menus that can only be reproduced in VR, such as exercises that specialize in controlling “load swing”, satisfying everyone from beginners to experienced users. We have prepared a menu for you.
This system has begun to be used for training and employee training at crane schools and crane operators in Japan.
