Preparing natural gas field personnel for critical missions with a dynamic interactive simulation
With development funding from OTD, GTI provided subject matter expertise and engaged PIXO VR to develop training to better prepare utility natural gas personnel to effectively and efficiently identify and respond to emergency leak response calls with a dynamic interactive simulation.
The new Natural Gas Leak Emergency VR Training module challenges trainees working in natural gas distribution to explore a fully immersive and interactive 3D neighborhood in a highly realistic VR simulation. A wide variety of situational and environmental details can be randomized with each experience to keep trainees alert and engaged. The module was built with multi-user capabilities in mind. Scenarios can be completed cooperatively, or a trainer can join in to coach the trainee along the way.
With this training module, everything matters. The nature of the gas leak, decisions made by first responders, and changing facts on the ground all contribute to a successful or unsuccessful outcome---just as they would in real life.
New Training Modules Available
Based on overwhelming response to the first VR training module on natural gas leaks, GTI has launched a new suite of VR training modules on activities for other critical missions. They include:
- Inside Leak Investigation
- Outside Leak Investigation
- Pipeline Right-of-Way Patrolling
- Facility Locating And Marking
- Appliance Inspection
- Plus enhancements to the Natural Gas Leak Emergency Response module
