3.4 Virtual Reality and Simulations


Overview

Describe the differences between virtual reality and simulation.

Demonstrate and apply knowledge and understanding of how virtual reality is used in the following applications:

− training; and

− gaming.


Definitions

Virtual reality:

A system that enables a person to react and move according to certain simulated conditions

Simulation:

A program which models a real life situation by putting values into a model to see how it behaves in different environments.


VR Equipment

  • Helmet

  • Gloves

  • Bodysuit


Examples of VR

  • Games

  • Holiday tours

  • Combat situations

  • Historical recreations


Helmet sometimes called a Head Mounted Device - allows 3D visual hearing

Glove for sensations of touch to allow the control of the model

Helmet and Glove


A device that goes on the end of the finger and senses simulated movement

Finger sensor


Advantages

Eliminates the danger

Less expensive than using a real plane

Helps give the pilot experience of a real environment

Disadvantages

The training can only be as good as the program

Pilot cockpit training


Gaming

Advantages

  • Can add to the gaming experience such as having animated people with various attributes

  • Visual, sound and sensation effects can be added

Disadvantages

  • The person can start believing in the unreal

  • The equipment to play the games is sophisticated


Acronyms

  • VR: Virtual reality

  • HMD: Head Mounted Device


Discussion

“It is said that soon we will not have to travel to go on holiday but choose a virtual reality environment to visit instead.”

Discuss this statement.
