VR Training and Flight Simulator applied in HKIAA courses
Our Department has developed a virtual aircraft loading bridge operations training (VALBOT) system for the Airport Authority Hong Kong. The system is developed based on the imseCAVE system that uses the state-of-the-art mixed reality (MR) technology to recreate an authentic virtual environment for the training of engineers and operators working in the airfield. VALBOT is installed in the International Aviation Academy at the Hong Kong International Airport.
Following the ceremony, the Chief Executive, accompanied by AA Chairman Jack So and AA CEO Fred Lam, visited our brand-new training facilities, including the Virtual Aircraft Loading Bridge Operation and the Flight Simulator at the Virtual Reality (VR) Room of the Hong Kong International Aviation Association (HKIAA). As pioneering aviation VR training facilities in Hong Kong, they provide students with an immersive training environment to enhance their practical skills in ﬂight or ramp operations. They come equipped with the innovative imseCAVE, a low-cost, high-performance Cave Automatic Virtual Environment (CAVE) system designed and deployed by the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering of the University of Hong Kong.
