3D simulation virtual environments are a great way to train workers in heavy industries like manufacturing, oil and gas. Workers in these environments are required to perform complex operations in unsafe environments. Gamification in training involves the development of immersive virtual environments to help train workers for real life situations in a safe manner. Customized interactive 3D environments can be used to create intensive off-site training sessions that can be accessed from anywhere. In simulations with VR integration, head mounted displays, treadmills, sensors and tracking systems can allow trainees to experience realistic scenarios.
The Unity3D game engine is well suited for creating immersive 3D worlds that allow users to interact with complex equipment and large machines. With the Unity engine, one can also develop cross-platform training applications for mobile devices, desktops or web browsers. Training simulations can be designed to take workers through safety instructions, operations, maintenance and repair as well as assembly processes.
