Serious Labs develops VR training simulators for the heavy construction industry. The company’s website currently advertises VR simulations for cranes, aerial work platforms, and snubbing. The company also offers non-VR training applications and simulations workers can use on a phone, tablet, or laptop.
Serious Labs previously assisted United Rentals with a more traditional blended simulator, which included a VR display and physical control panels.
In addition to the $5 million in VC funding, Serious Labs announced they have secured over $3.5 million in VR contracts. The money will be used to further develop Serious Lab’s VR simulators, including forklifts, backhoes, and skid steers.
