The VRC Calgary virtual reality, overhead crane training simulator is complete and has all the functionality of the real crane. We have implemented physics in our simulator so, the hook has the real like swing when starting and stopping the movement of the bridge or trolley. In this simulation we use an obstacle course and scoring system within our programing. We can also have the instructor in the simulation assessing the trainee performance, as we would with the presence of a real crane. During our simulation we can safely teleport to the bridge of the crane and inspect the components of the overhead crane including the bridge travel motors and rails . This is not always available or possible in some facilities, as there is no access.
This simulator was developed using our philosophy of “Zero Harm” . Our simulator includes training on the 2 different type head sets we use and set up of the equipment.
