Thermography for the detection of faults in kinematic chains
This Virtual Reality Application allows to learn how to detect seven electromechanical failures in a powertrain. The tool is based on real thermographic data from experiments on a real powertrain where thermal images were acquired with a low-cost infrared sensor.
Real Termographic Images
The designed VR tool is based on real thermographic data from experiments performed on a real kinematic chain where thermal images were acquired with a low-cost infrared sensor.
It is important to maintain a high quality in the models, aiming to be as realistic and accurate as possible, since it has been demonstrated that the motivation of learning in virtual environments is directly proportional to the quality of the 3D models represented
Virtual reality application
A virtual reality application has been developed in order to take full advantage of the benefits that VR provides for training, such as autonomous interaction, hands-on learning and problem solving.
The design of this experience focuses on creating:
Close-to-reality VR experience in which to learn and practice the principles of thermography in kinematic chain fault detection
An environment in which to access a variety of faults that are difficult to approach in a real-world environment
Provide immediate feedback based on operational learning.
