Virtual Reality and Virtual Environments: A Tool for Improving Occupational Safety and Health – eBook PDF
Virtual reality (VR) techniques are becoming more popular. The use of computer visualization and modeling is no longer exceptional in the area of ergonomics and occupational health and safety. Virtual Reality and Virtual Environments (PDF) describes how studies conducted in a simulated virtual world are making it likely to test new solutions for designed workstations, providing a high degree of ease for introducing modifications and removing risk and work-related accidents. Virtual reality techniques provide a wide range of possibilities including adapting workstations for people with disabilities and special needs, increasing the cognitive abilities of the elderly, and remote control of machines using collaborative robots.
Detailed discussions include:
- Using computer simulation in generic virtual environments
- Testing safety systems, and protective devices, the numerical reconstruction of work accidents
On the one hand, it is a self-study ebook made so by well-crafted and several examples. On the other hand, through a comprehensive analysis of the virtual reality from a viewpoint of work safety and ergonomics and health improvement.
Noteworthy is the comprehensive scope and diversity of the addressed problems, ranging from training employees using VR environments with various degrees of perceived reality; training and rehabilitation of the elderly; to designing, testing, modifying, and adapting workplaces to several needs including those of disabled workers; to simulation and investigation of the cause of accidents at a workplace.
