Description
HYDAC VR Training (HVRT) gives staff and students the opportunity to participate in instructor guided, and self-guided, hydraulics maintenance training in virtual reality. HVRT users can work from home or off-site. HVRT supports real-time instructor feedback, self-guided training and skill verification, through direct hands-on interaction with a fully functional model of a hydraulic mining transport system which provides a hydraulic wheel locking unit with pressure to secure iron ore train waggons while they are loaded. ​
