FORAN users meeting in Toledo experience head-mounted display (HMD) virtual reality representation.

HMD is a device that lets the user to view and interact with 3D simulation environments, in this case applied to 3D ship models generated in FORAN.

After the development of the second generation of a viewer, FORAN FVIEWER VR, for the virtual navigation through the ship 3D model, SENER has presented a new and innovating application in a Head Mounting Display (HMD).

The recent FORAN Users Meeting in Toledo was the venue for this new experience, where SENER in collaboration with Ingevideo showed to the event attendees two different and innovative approaching to the VR. The first one was a VR room, with a screen of 6 m length and 3 m wide, a projector Christie Digital Mirage CP2210 (resolution 2048 x1080 and 12.500 ansi lumens) and Is900 ultrasounds tracking system of the company Intersense.

The second and more surprising was the interactive demo with a HMD with an optical tracking solution. Both environments were used to navigate around ship 3D models.

A VR room has recently been supplied by SENER to NAVANTIA Cartagena, which is an example of the benefit of using the VR for shipbuilding. It is being used to review the model of the new generation of submarines developed in FORAN for the Spanish Navy, the S80 series.
