How AS Roma increased its conversion rate in online ticketing with a VR Solution
AS Roma faced a series of problems that made the buying process difficult and undermined fan’s experience. A shopping experience that was focused on the Roman fan, without taking into account the millions of tourists who visit the Italian capital each year.
To ensure its highest quality of consumer satisfaction, AS Roma decided to include 3D Digital Venue and VivaTicket as part of the final solution. The integration of the 3DDIGITALVENUE PLATFORM, offered by 3D Digital Venue, has enabled fans to check interactive 3D 360-degree views from all seats of the stadium before purchasing their tickets. Being able to select the seat with view of their choice at the click of a button, would play a key role in order to boost fan experience and fan loyalty, and also to empower the comprehension of the venue. 3D Digital Venue has been working tirelessly for years now to make sure their robust technology makes this task of virtualization much easier than what it appears to be. AS Roma also partnered with Vivaticket in order to jointly re-design the new e-commerce, offering a simple and intuitive experience for the users, with the objective of making the whole buying process in only 5 clicks.

iAltitude and INDRA develop the first simulator that prepares pilots in the lack of oxygen

Indra has developed a simulator for the Spanish Air Force that is designed to prepare military pilots to avoid the risk of hypoxia in the cabin due to lack of oxygen, a problem that can cause the loss of consciousness in a few seconds and that can be faced by these professionals when flying at high altitude.

To carry out the project, the company has partnered with the Spanish startup iAltitude, specialized in sports training at height. Indra has integrated the simulator of the C101 jet plane (the same one in which the Spanish pilots train before being put at the controls of an F18 or Eurofighter) with the normobaric hypoxia equipment of iAltitude.

The system, which will be delivered shortly to the Army and will be implemented in the aerospace medical training center, is one of the few developed in the world and recreates in a controlled manner the conditions that cause hypoxia in such flights, while measuring the physical and cognitive reaction of the pilot. The simulator will help the pilots to detect the symptoms to react to an exceptional situation, but which is critical for safety.

The system created by Indra and iAltitude regulates the concentration of oxygen received by the pilot through his mask, progressively reducing it to analyze its resistance and reaction capacity. Instructors can monitor in real time the physical and cognitive response of pilots while replicating real operations. Any change in their physiological variables or in the speed with which they react to the stimuli will be recorded, and with these data the training center will be able to design training plans and reinforce the skills and safety of the pilots.
