DiSTI Delivers Submersible Training for RRC Robotica Submarina

Virtualized Training Application Gives Submersible Maintenance Crew Clear-Cut Assistance on Routine Checks and Procedures

 
PRLog - Feb. 20, 2013 - The DiSTI Corporation, a leading developer of interactive 3D software and customized training solutions, has successfully delivered the first virtual maintenance trainer for RRC Robotica Submarina to train personnel on routine maintenance procedures for their fleet of deep sea Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV). The SIMA ROV virtual task trainer provides a comprehensive training experience integrated directly into the containerized control center that is deployed with each submersible unit.

RRC Robotica Submarina is a Brazilian company that specializes in deep-sea exploration work, as well as training personnel and customers on deep-sea exploration at their Deep Water Education Center. A component of this training is the use of ROVs by their commercial and military customers. With the procurement of several new ROV systems from Schilling Robotics, RRC contracted DiSTI’s professional services team to provide a virtual maintenance system called “Sistema de Manutenção Avançada” (SIMA), Portuguese for “Advanced System Maintenance.” The virtual maintenance trainer provides RRC with an enhanced and cost effective method for training ROV personnel on pre and post operation checks and routine maintenance procedures in a comprehensive easily accessible application prior to live hands-on experience.

DiSTI’s professional services team used a combination of GL Studio® and Replic8™ to develop the ROV maintenance training application. GL Studio provided accurate emulations of the intricate user interface of the ROV’s control station. Replic8 provided the out of the box interactive 3D lesson framework for rendering and controlling the components of the virtualized ROV.

“RRC Robotica wanted a maintenance training system that could be used whenever the ROVs deploy onboard ship to enable maintenance technicians to train during downtime. Our solution was to install the maintenance training courseware on a computer in the ROV containers that control the actual ROV mission,” said Chris Giordano, Director of Global Sales at DiSTI.

“RRC Robotica is delighted with the new SIMA software developed and customized by DiSTI to RRC Robotica. [The] RRC initiative having our maintenance system supported by interactive 3D software such as SIMA is unique worldwide. I am sure our clients will perceive all the benefits including: innovation, professionalism, reduction of human mistakes and maintenance time throughout the years," said José Ramos Duarte Jr., Director President of RRC Robotica Submarina.
