Welding simulator using virtual reality
The candidate will be involved in the INESC TEC team for the development of an immersive welding simulator, using virtual reality (VR). Welding instructions will be presented to the apprentice, 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, weld temperature and energy transfer.
