About clientA company representing the educational sector, which provides specialized OHS training for power engineers. It plans to sell services based on our solution in the European markets.
Working as a power engineer means exposure to particular risks, including work on electrical poles, on basket elevators, or in medium and high-voltage switching stations.
Typical learning in a training room does not prepare power engineers for real dangers. There is a need to create a training system based on virtual reality in order to increase the effectiveness of the training and identify people without predispositions.
- Project manager
- Business analyst
- Programmer .Net (Web interface)
- Unity programmer (VR)
- Programmer C++ (electronic controllers)
- Automation engineer
- Mechanic constructor (dedicated cases)
Our solution is a VR training system including additional elements to enhance the real-world experience:
– controlled wind blast,
– safety vest with vibration mechanics (signaling a trainee’s mistake),
– basket elevator simulator with movement in two axes and a pneumatic actuator.
The trainee’s reaction is monitored by a heart monitor.
The project includes three scenarios: working on a high-voltage pole/basket elevator and activities in a medium-voltage switching station.
Technology used in project
.Net – web application, C++ – aplication for data acquisition, Unity – VR, Pneumatic control, 3D printer – case prototyping
Value we added
VR technology makes it possible to provide real-world training through virtual environments while providing an effective and immersive training experience. Our system supports the learning process and reduces serious accidents during the work of power engineers.
