This crane simulator allows to develop the necessary skills without having to operate a real crane. This can be very useful in high-cost cranes such as in the harbour, or above production lines. Every minute this crane is not put to good use has a huge cost. Training in VR also promises to significantly lower the risks of incidents.
For this project we developed a container ship unloading crane in a Virtual Reality environment but the environment can be catered to the experience of the operator and simulate various emergency and routine scenarios to optimally train the operator.
