xR technology generally refers to technologies that combine the real and virtual worlds, including virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR).

By providing these solutions, ISID has recorded multiple unique achievements, including a remote VR-based education system and a virtual maintenance training system that utilizes MR technology. Through these efforts, ISID has established comprehensive systems capable of handling everything from development to support.
