Ship simulation is an essential part of maritime education as it increases the quality of training. Still, most students and teachers want more hours of experimenting in simulators. How can we offer more quality training for students without heavy investments in new costly simulators? How can we offer students simulation training during the covid pandemic when in-person teaching is restricted? AR (Augmented Reality) simulation will soon make these challenges history. The technology allows students to conduct simulation cases at home on their living room tables using their smartphones.
