CRANE CONTROL VR
Secutex Sicherheitstechnik GmbH is a leading manufacturer of polyurethane coated lifting straps and protective hoses.
Secutex coating is cut-resistant and offers a reliable solution for even the most difficult loads.
This virtual reality training is the ideal companion to crane driver training.
Customisable lifting scenarios
The instructor is able to fully configure the lift parameters and it is easy to set up the various load types, realistic weights and nominal capacity of the lifting straps.
It is also possible to calculate friction for problematic “sharp edges”.
Integrating custom hardware
Using customer-specific hardware means the virtual reality application offers an even better simulation.
The crane controls have been set up through a wireless peripheral device, with an exact representation
of the control buttons and their functions, allowing realistic haptic control.
When using a hall or overhead crane, it is important to consider pendulum motions.
Virtual reality makes these appear realistic and dangerous situations can be simulated for training purposes.
Collision detection plays an important role and we use millimetre accuracy to ensure the load is not damaged under any circumstances. However, if danger is imminent,
the user will be alerted through appropriate warnings.
Official safety rules are incorporated into virtual reality.
If the crane operator’s behaviour appears dangerous,
this is pointed out as a potentially hazardous situation.
To ensure the training is as effective as possible, different scenarios can be implemented,
with a score or evaluation at the end of the training to provide an accurate safety assessment.
