Metis IS develop custom Virtual Reality software and applications. From a simple site walkthrough to an immersive and interactive training experience, we have the expertise to develop fully customised solutions to suit your requirements and improve efficiency in your projects. Some applications of VR technology include:
- Operator Training
An immersive training tool is developed to train operators on complex tasks before they are required to undertake the operations in the real world.
- Safety training & Inductions
Replace a PowerPoint presentation with a Virtual Reality Tutorial and reduce risks, improve safety and increase operator and visitors confidence. Performing tasks in a virtual environment facilitates better memorisation of the process and therefore results in better and safer user performance.
- Maintenance Instructions
A physical user manual can be replaced by a Virtual Reality Tutorial where the operator follows step by step instructions and become familiar with the maintenance process of a piece of equipment.
- Site walkthrough & Visualization
Virtual Reality can also be used to demonstrate new site development and help stakeholders visualize the proposed solution(s) in a realistic environment.
Augmented Reality is invaluable when it comes to design verification, validation and inspection. To get the best experience, an AR headset is required, however many applications can be used on mobile devices. Some applications of AR include:
- Design validation
Using QR codes or other placement technologies, a 1 to 3D model can be positioned (overlaid) on site. It is useful to verify fitness for purpose, risk of interferences, mounting to existing structure.
- Maintenance & Inspection
When using an AR headset, the 3D model of a plant, structure or equipment can be overlaid over the real item. Features such as interactive maintenance instructions, inspection instructions, fault report, etc. can be built in the application.
- Plant visualization
Augmented Reality can be used to visualize new plant development in context of existing plant. This is useful to validate new development and demonstrate future site to stakeholders. This can be done using a headset or mobile devices.
Computer Generated Imagery (CGI)
At Metis IS we have the capabilities to produce photo-realistic imagery of your design.
From any 3D model, we are able to create a fully textured model rendered in surrounding environment, making it ideal for promotional material or presentation purpose.
For more complex systems, we are able to animate the model, add operators and titles to develop explanatory videos, showing details of a process or mechanism.
Applications of Computer Generated Imagery include Site walkthrough/flythrough; Product demonstration, Process explanation, Promotional or marketing videos, Training instructions, Induction videos, and more.
