Research and development of an advanced training system for high-acuity scenarios based upon the integration of a psychophysiological evaluation module, a virtual reality simulation system, and blockchain based certification processes. Through the creation of an advanced industrial demonstrator the present R&D project defines, develops and shows an IoT-based, VR highly-integrated, groundbreaking training platform, a non-invasive assessment of the psychophysiological state of the worker and blockchain-based system for processes certification, aimed at training operators for high-acuity scenarios.
A simulated scenario will be cast to model an industrial environment consisting of a girder crane which will be the main element of the simulation. Furthermore, other typically related pieces of equipment, such as machines and infrastructures, will be simulated into the virtual environment. The main goal of the simulator is to provide the inexperienced operator, that has to be properly guilded through the girder crane, with a virtual environment in which to get acquainted with the scenario and its main elements, the underlying involved mechanisms and to get the chance to make several attempts to perform critical or dangerous tasks, without the risks or the economic losses associated with a real-life situation.
