Client: Tata Steel Port Talbot – VR Training Simulator
Heavy industry job sites can be aggressive and hazardous environments. These job sites change every day. And what was safe yesterday can be potentially very dangerous the next. Training can be a challenge in such environments. How does a company like Tata Steel train its workforce and avoid any danger? In a joint effort, the companies Controllab and BLUF implemented a Virtual Reality training program for crane operators with major benefits.
Integration of authentic controls in Virtual Reality.
Controllab and BLUF found a solution for these challenges. Developing a highly realistic virtual-reality simulator for Tata Steel’s crane driver training program. With this VR simulator, no real risk ever arises for man or machine.
While a crane operator is operating the crane in Virtual Reality, the instructor uses a dashboard on his computer to apply, manage, and analyze training scenarios. He can follow the operators progress through different cameras and gain insights about their actions. This unique data and insights are saved to improve quality of the operator and overall training.
