Serious Games have a great potential to professionalise the training of employees in intralogistics. Using virtual reality (VR) and established serious game mechanics trainees can be prepared for their future tasks in logistics in a motivating, individual and sustainable manner. The Fraunhofer IML developed a VR-based learning game for warehouse logistics in cooperation with the DEKRA Akademie that simulates the receiving goods process. It will be included as a training module in the DEKRA Akademie portfolio. An evaluation study on cognitive and physical ergonomics explored the human-machine interaction and the suitability of the virtual training for warehouse trainees. Study results clarify that it is a user-friendly, motivating educational game. The implementation concept of the VR application is presented as a direct consequence of the Fraunhofer IML VR strategy.
