What is it?
The main aim of the project is the creation of a very innovative immersive and interactive training environment based on Virtual Reality (VR) technology to impart construction workers essential skills and education to interact with machinery and materials. Mobile phone based immersive application will be adapted to simulate real life construction scenarios with characteristics of use of robots and equipment for workers across Europe, particularly for the low skilled workers and disadvantaged groups, with low level of experience on sites with advanced machinery. Awareness of the risks and safety needs of automation is gradually becoming an essential skill in current and future workplace as a result of the complex interactions imposed by the associated machines and materials in the same work environment. It will allow different stakeholders from the construction sector (professional associations, unions, administration) to achieve the desired awareness and upskilling about the impact robotics and automation on health, safety and environment in the construction industry across Europe.
Who is it for?
The objective of the project is to create a Virtual Reality (VR)-based immersive and interactive training system that can give contractors the background information and instruction they need to work safely with tools and materials. Players in the building sector, academics conducting research, and members of civic society can all certainly benefit from it.
