AIXR has announced the 2020 nominees for their 4th annual international VR Awards, an event that celebrates the remarkable achievements in the VR industry.
General Electric Nuclear Energy, world leading provider of nuclear services, has resulted finalist in Best VR Education and Training of the Year category. Through VIROO, VR Enterprise Solution of the Year 2019 Winner, GEH is able to replicate complex processes and highly skilled activities that require top level expertise and training, as well as outstanding coordination between the different parties involved. That means multiple users collaborating in 1:1 scale VR nuclear environment.
The VR simulator deployed in VIROO, replicates a fuel movement process with tactile and haptic feedback. A physical replica of the refuelling mast is connected directly to the virtual environment, so users are able to carry out fuel movement operations as if they were doing so in reality. This is the first of a new generation of simulators that in alliance with Virtualware, GEH will release for operation during the coming years.
