Industrial Simulation

This area investigates the use of virtual reality techniques for the development of industrial simulators. The general objective is to make available to companies, mainly SMEs, multimedia training tools with simulation support, in Prevention of Occupational Risks, aimed at entrepreneurs, managers, middle managers, preventive resources and self-employed workers.

This area investigates the use of virtual reality techniques for the development of industrial simulators.

Main contributions:

Learn how to operate a crane in a safe environment. The didactic simulators constitute an ambitious solution to train operators in the management of critical situations. They offer the possibility of training employees precisely for the efficient management of different models of cranes for a reduced cost. The versatile virtual environment simulates the environmental conditions and the most varied scenarios.

The group has participated in several research projects and agreements with companies that have resulted in the development of various industrial simulators (cranes, trucks, etc.)
