szenaris on the Learntec 2011
Training systems for remote controlled vehicles and for safety at work are among the presentation highlights
Bremen, January 20th, 2011 – szenaris has already received two renowned awards for the “Safety at work online” learning program. From February 1st through 3rd, 2011, this program will also be in the focus of the corporate presentation on the “Learntec” trade fair in Karlsruhe. A further highlight is the presentation of training systems for the remote operation of autonomous vehicles.
Virtual vehicles with extremely realistic behaviour
On the Learntec, szenaris gives an insight into new developments from the last two years. The “Manipulator Vehicles Training Equipment”, which has been produced for the Explosive Ordnance Disposal squad of the Bundeswehr and has been delivered to the customer at the end of last year, has a key role among those developments. Manipulator vehicles are remote controlled robotic systems which are e. g. used to carry out dangerous tasks. The training system from szenaris enables the training of the operation of two remote controlled manipulator vehicles which are used by the Bundeswehr, “tEODor” and “Packbot”. The system uses virtual reality but supports the original control devices.
In 13 virtual scenarios, ranging from an airport and train station to a town hall and a bus, the trainer can place different suspicious objects, which the trainee needs to find and dispose of with a manipulator vehicle. Special advantages of the system are excellent graphical quality and an extremely realistic behaviour of the virtual vehicles up to the realistic handling of objects. szenaris invites all EOD squad members to see the system on the Learntec. Other users of remote controlled robotic devices will also receive suggestions on how to optimise the training with a similar system.
Award-winning twice: training series on safety at work
All employers in Germany are obliged to instruct their employees on safety health protection at work – on a regular basis, if needed. This is what the safety at work act requires. As is generally known, the professional associations and accident insurance companies primarily monitor the companies’ compliance with the provisions of this act. The “Safety at work online” learning program series vividly and effectively imparts all important information which employers should be aware of to avoid accidents at work.
The learning program comprises 17 topics ranging from alcohol and first aid to hazardous substances and traffic. Each module can be worked through in about 20 minutes and concludes with a test consisting of five randomly selected questions. The passed test serves as a certificate and can be printed out.
This Internet based solution does not require training personnel to be present anymore. This considerably saves personnel costs and precious time. The economic efficiency increases significantly. An acceptance test revealed that more than 80 percent of the test subjects appreciated this new way of learning as a significant quality improvement due to the appropriate presentation of learning contents. Additional modules and topics will be produced in 2011.
“Safety at work online” has been awarded the “Comenius EduMedia” seal in Berlin on June 25th, 2010, being already the second award for this learning program series after the Corporate Media “Award of Master” in December 2009.
Lecture on practice-oriented learning in virtual worlds
On the Learntec, szenaris also presents further new developments such as the “Respiratory Devices” learning program series and “Fundamentals of Beam Forming”.
CEO Dr. Uwe Katzky will hold a half-hour lecture titled “Practice- Oriented Learning in Virtual Worlds” considering aspects of the new developments on Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011 at 3 PM.
The szenaris team is looking forward to see you at booth C52 in hall 1 on the Learntec in Karlsruhe from February 1st through 3rd, 2011.
About szenaris GmbH:
szenaris enables the efficient qualification of employees using custommade learning software and simulation systems. The operation of a complex technical system can be trained as efficiently as the remote operation of a robot or the comprehension of demanding theoretical learning contents. szenaris develops custom-made solutions based on Computer Based Training (CBT), Web Based Training (WBT), simulations in virtual environments (Virtual Reality) and complex team training systems.
