Abstract: Currently, Augmented Reality (AR) is a rapid growing research topic in many different training fields. The user can interact with information overlay onto real world as well as computer model generated and displayed within it. This study develop an AR application for training system in automotive industry and evaluate its effectiveness. The application was developed using Unity 3D and Vuforia and installed in Samsung Galaxy A Tablet. For the experiment, 10 students from Institut Latihan Perindustrian Kuala Lumpur were selected and divided randomly into two groups; paper based group and AR based group. Participants changed the task at the end of each condition and answer survey at the end of the experiment. The experiment shows reduction of 10.27 % and 42.86 % in Task Completion Time and error counts using AR based instruction. The survey analysis also shows that most of the participant preferred AR to be used in performing maintenance task. This is an ongoing project where Virtual Reality application for engine assembly, disassembly and performance will be evaluated to enhance learning method in tertiary education. The engine system will be designed by using Maya 2018 and will import to Unity game engine. From this experiment, the VR application will be evaluated and analysed in order to evaluate the effectiveness of VR implementation.
