We have designed a computer game to help dismantle a real nuclear reactor.
Working with Magnox Ltd we have developed a virtual simulation of their Dragon test reactor which operated in the 1960’s and 70’s.
The reactor is due for decommissioning next year and the work will be undertaken using a laser deployed by a robot arm.
The simulation we have created accurately recreates the reactor environment and will enable operators to gain experience and develop entry strategies prior to deploying the real equipment.
You might have seen a previous video we made about an accompanying VR tool designed to improve operator spatial awareness which will be used in tandem with this simulation.
Next step – we are adding a gamified scoreboard to encourage operators to repeat the training, improve their times and make fewer mistakes.
Training complex tasks shouldn’t be this fun should it? Actually yes, it should.
