Virtual Reality in Industrial Environment


Work description

The candidate will be involved in the INESC TEC team to develop an immersive welding simulator, using virtual reality (VR). The welding instructions will be presented to the learner, who will have to reproduce the task using the VR system. The VR system will follow the user's movement with extreme precision and will monitor the trajectory of the simulated welding gun. The system will also provide feedback to the learner regarding some technical aspects of the welding process such as welding torch angle, welding temperature and energy transfer.
