Development of a mechanical maintenance training simulator in OpenSimulator for F-16 aircraft engines

  1. 1. Scenario
  2. 2. Scenario Multi-userMany proceduresLocal approaches
  3. 3. PUT DOWN
  4. 4. System architecture
  5. 5. 1 script used in all objects (the same script)
  6. 6. Decision-making outside State control Behaviours Logging etc.(independent from 3D)
  7. 7. User testing
  8. 8. User testing At air base N.º 5 2 sessions 6 air force trainers We recorded notes + interviews
  9. 9. Tests & Results - highlights• Trainers: average age 42, regular computer users• No prior virtual world experience• Found it an useful asset in support of practice• Required connection with prior safety inspection checklist• It is necessary to increase the level of detail• Interaction is adequate and sufficient• More procedures are required to cover the full set of basic operations
  10. 10. Future steps• Mixed teams of human and computer avatars• Automated registration of objects by graphic designers and behaviour definition by trainer (not software engineers)• Implement system in alternative 3D platform for improving separation of concerns
