Bosch Xperience: Bosch has three Bosch Xperience trucks traveling throughout the country providing participants with a 3D tour of a gasoline engine. Using Oculus Rift goggles, mainly used in gaming and aviation training, it takes the participants from the intake, through the engine, and out the exhaust. The virtual reality tour provides some basic training on the various parts shown.
Last week, the Bosch Xperience trucks stopped at the Transportation Education Center (TEC) and students at TEC enjoyed an virtual reality learning experience. Additionally, Bosch provided Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) and Vehicle Stability Controls training during the lunch hour. Bosch also provided lunch for that event. About 71 students participated in the training.
