Some Considerations of using Virtual Reality in the Training Process Specific to Disciplines of Applied Mechanics
In this paper, we first discuss issues regarding the training in mechanical design using CAD software to develop the geometric model of the components, the simulation possibilities of functioning in the case of the model developed, when it may become part of a virtual setting. We present, in the second part of the paper, in brief, the reasons for the introduction of virtual reality with immersion in the processes of theoretical and practical training in mechanical disciplines. There are some considerations on the methodological implications and we propose an extension of the model Wegener. We describe a pilot station which is in progress to test the use of virtual reality in the training activities concerned. We present the first achievements in this direction namely, proper populating of the virtual setting, interconnection of Cyber Glove gloves with the virtual setting and manipulating virtual parts for visual observation and simple assembly operations.
