COMOS Walkinside Immersive Training Simulator

The COMOS Walkinside Immersive Training Simulator (ITS) fully immerses operators in their plants. It simulates real-life scenarios and supports multiple avatars to test team performance and communication.

To further increase the training realism, the 3D model may be enriched with all details of the existing plant. The 3D objects are procedurally added to the virtual reality model to flag evacuation routes, emergency and firefighting equipment signs, etc. Escape paths are represented in their full length for rehearsal of evacuation procedures. Sound effects complete the realistic setting.

The COMOS Walkinside ITS is built around the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) editor functionality. It is complemented with a visual editor that helps customize specific operational situations. Instructors use the editor program to design real-life or simulated workflow situations with multiple training options. During the walkthrough, operators can directly see an up-to-date results list of all the content related to the equipment – data sheets, specifications, procedures, certification and test reports – by clicking on a piece of equipment in the 3D model. This allows the immersive visualization of ongoing work, planning of future projects and simulation of complex activities in a real work environment for maintenance teams. Control Room Operators can also be integrated into training scenarios and critical decision processes.

Benefits of COMOS ITS

  • Significantly improved personal safety through virtual training in the as-built environment
  • Unique and immersive training experience with easy, fast and game-like navigation
  • Efficient training of cooperation and interaction within and between teams
  • Counteracts the increasing shortage in experienced personnel
  • High value for dangerous and remote working environments (e.g. oil and gas industry)
  • Training can be started before the real plant is taken into operation.
