Lock out Tag out (LOTO) is one of the most important safety procedures in the industry. Using special locks, an operator will lock the on/off switch in OFF position before maintenance is conducted. If there is another person working on the same machine another lock has to be hung on that switch. This way, all persons have to remove their lock before the machine can be started.
This prevents people from accidentally supplying power to a machine while people are working on it. Incorrect execution of the LOTO procedure is one of the main causes of injuries/deaths in the general industry.
Using Virtual Reality, OneBonsai built a proof-of-concept for LOTO training in VR. This system allows:
- An operator to train the complete LOTO procedure in VR
- Track performance of the operator during VR training
- Adjust to specific industrial requirements and environments.
