Project description
Accidents in workplaces are some of the most common risk factors for companies of construction industry and scaffolding service providers. The Virtual Reality training platform for safety education developed by the Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences provides modern and safe training environment for construction site workers. The VR SafeScaff ensures 3D immersive training experience, that enhances cognitive sense of surrounding abilities and provide individuals with the conditions for learning through physical reflex memory. In contrast with the existing training environments SafeScaff provides hands-on experience that provides the most real-life comparable settings, and event scenarios. The training mode includes guide-through tutorial with pop-up training descriptions and construction element hologram blueprints for improved memorization with grading module. The multi-user experience provides conditions for team training opportunities and overall increased situational awareness and understanding of team co-work settings. The project has been created under the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Measure 1.2.1. Specific support goal “To Increase the Private Sector Investments R&D”; measure 1.2.1.2. “Support for Improvement of Technology Transfer System” “Industry‑Driven Research” KC-PI-2020/64 under the guidance of Investment and Development Agency of Latvia.
