Virtual and augmented reality room to develop new simulation Technologies and applications in aerospace processes
Within the Area of Simulation and Software, CATEC has one of the most outstanding technological equipment to experiment and apply new technologies in the field of pilot training: its virtual augmented reality room (VA/AR). This equipment is composed of a 5x3 meters 130º curved screen, which also includes a ultrasound locator and positioning system. This laboratory is also provided with VR glasses and gloves which are able to create interfaces of fully immersion in simulated situations

This lab enables the development of the most innovative techniques of teleoperation immersive systems. Precisely, CATEC is focusing the use of virtual reality on the training and the design of simulation environments. The centre is working as well on the development of applications of augmented reality for the process of teleoperation and assembly assistance, either for equipment or in environments such as a FAL (Final Assembly Line).

As a complement to this activity, CATEC has all kinds of user interfaces, such as a Microsoft Surface, haptic devices, multi-touch laptops, and so on. The applications are numerous, from shopfloor information access systems to ground control stations and instructor positions in simulators or support systems for assembly.

This technology is fully available to be used by the enterprises and entities interested in it. For further information you can contact the Area of Simulation and Software’s manager, [Alberto Prieto.]mail: adprieto@catec.aero
