This research presents the design and development of holographic environment for multi-user virtual robot training system. During On-the-Job Training (OJT), this proposed system assists the trainer to train the trainee for operating the virtual robot arm at the robot station. It is designed for multiple users to access the same augmented environment including the physics-based simulation at the same time. In the augmented environment, the trainer can demonstrate the operation of the robot through the hologram while the trainee can visualize and operate the virtual robot by interaction with the hologram. The result showed that the same augmented environment was interacted by the trainer and the trainee successfully. Hologram environment was accurately mapped to the real environment. In the future, the proposed system can send a set of commands to control the real robot as similar to the hologram version.
