    Software

    3D VIRTUAL REALITY

    • 3D visualisation of various ship compartments
    • Access to Local Operation Posts from 3D visualisation
    • Control and functionality adjustment from 3D visualisation

     

    Imitation of Local Operation Posts in Machinery Compartments

    • Trainee selects a starting point and a point of destination.
    • A video from a real vessel shows a walk-through to the destination from MCR.
    • This eliminates the need for ‘gaming’ experience to navigate to a given location.
      It also adds real time constraints into full mission resource management exercises.
    • On arrival trainee can operate the selected local operation post.
    • The machinery space 3D visualisation allows trainees to move to an individual piece of equipment and to operate it.
