Simulation

We’re Serious about Simulation. Visualisation. Gamification.

Many jobs are dangerous! Even office based workers face a range of hazards that if not properly trained to mitigate can cause significant loss.

We build immersive 3D simulations to provide employees with a safe training environment which enables them to go through a range of scenarios they are likely to face in the real world and even ones they probably won’t – but should be ready in the event they do occur. Staff members can learn and practice as much as they need to build skills and confidence.

Our simulations reduce risk and cost of training in the real world and provide better performance outcomes.  If it’s expensive or dangerous to do the real world, simulate it!

We offer three main types of simulations:

Driving Simulators

SGIL builds simulators recreating realistic real world driving experiences.

We combine our expertise of leading edge hardware, 3D environments and AI development with our ability to integrate motion systems tuned to real world physics, haptic feedback and working vehicle controls.

Our artificial intelligence programming capability enables other actors in the environment to respond to user input by influencing the behaviour of other actors (traffic, pedestrians, road workers and vehicles in airports, etc.).

We offer a range of motion platforms and displays from 220 degree wrap around screens to 4K LCDs and Virtual Reality Headsets.

We integrate real vehicle components as required or simply use software to emulate them and use lower cost generic hardware.

Our simulators can be networked so multiple participants are able to act in the same environment whether they are co-located or not.

Equipment Simulators

Many organisations are still using old school training methods to train engineers on how to build, maintain, repair or replace equipment. They often rely on using actual equipment which is an expensive bottleneck and/or use a combination of low resolution photos on slides and 2D schematics from manuals.

Independent studies have shown that using 3D interactive training shortens training time and increases first time right performance. Please use the feedback form to request these studies if interested.

We usually build interactive 3D equipment training systems using NGRAIN’s patented voxel technology which also enables us to export procedures to augmented reality for use on tablets and smartglasses.

We either import existing CAD models or our expert team of 3D artists can model any equipment and convert it to the interactive NGRAIN format.

This enables engineers to explore the equipment by taking it apart and visually identifying components, seeing how to do procedures that are created from existing manuals and expert customer input, then getting to practice those procedures and if necessary be assessed on them with scores reported to a learning management system.

Solutions are deployed on existing PCs or tablets and increasingly as augmented reality (AR).

Current AR projects include using the NGRAIN SDK to integrate live sensor data and display on smartglasses in a factory and 3D aircraft maintenance support that is being delivered on both tablets and smart glasses.

SGIL also utilises virtual reality (VR) to deliver high end equipment visualisation for showrooms, events and multiuser equipment training remotely as well as  design engineering planning where multiple people walk into a design project and discuss without having to be in the same office to save time and cost on travel and potential rework after manufacturing.

Procedure Simulators

We develop simulations that help people understand the procedures that must be followed in dangerous, highly regulated or high financial risk environments where errors have high costs.

We represent the environment people are deployed in either 2D or 3D depending on the need for immersion and fidelity. We use the Unity game engine to build interactivity far beyond most eLearning on the market and deploy on touch screens where users can interact with their hands for deeper engagement vs using a mouse.

A great example of this was a recent project we did for BAE Systems which implied building a 3D training environment deployed on tablets where staff would go through every procedure in the correct order before and during manufacture in a dangerous environment. They would have to successfully complete the simulation before being allowed to do the real job.
