Safety is always a concern in a manufacturing setting. Many mechanics train in the field. While this can be good practice in other industries, it is risky to train on live machinery.
What it does
Leap Into Safety uses virtual reality with LEAP motion sensing to provide realistic training on live machinery, without the risk of operating on the occupational machines.
How we built it
Unity and a plethora of C# scripts tie the whole project together. Sources of input and output for the purposes of demoing is included an Oculus Rift and the LEAP sensor. We also used Blender for scene creation.
Challenges we ran into
No one on the team had any experience with what was required for the project with the exception of web design.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We successfully worked with both the Oculus Rift and LEAP sensor in unity and were able to interact with created objects in the scenes. All in all, a solid proof of concept and a basis for the project was produced.
What we learned
- LEAP Motion
- Google Assistant
- Virtual Reality
- Visual Studio
- Qualcomm Snapdragon
What's next for Leap Into Safety
Finishing the project and streamlining the creation process of training scenes.
