CYPE VR Laboratory Series

For safe and easy-to-understand experiments

Two new products are now available as part of the CYPE VR Laboratory series: the VR Experiment Education System (CYPE VRL-001) and the Cyber-Physical Experiment System (CYPE VRL-002). The “VR Experiment Education System” creates virtual experimental equipment by modeling a real laboratory, and allows students to operate knobs, switches, and other items that have been converted into 3D data in VR. Students listen to the instructor avatar, operate the virtual lab equipment, and perform the experiment training. Furthermore, the “Cyber-Physical Experiment System” links real experimental equipment with robots, etc., so that operations on virtual experimental equipment can be reflected on real machines and fed back as videos on the VR. Since the status of the students’ operation can be acquired as data, the effectiveness of the training can be analyzed. The CYPE VR Laboratory solves various problems such as lack of time for learning on actual equipment, and aims to improve students’ motivation to learn by promoting their experiential understanding through remote control and simulation.

Instruction and simulation of experiments using VR experimental equipment and avatars

Features

Deformed expression using VR

Students can go inside the experimental equipment on the VR and observe it closely to learn how it works.

Easy-to-understand experimental instruction using avatars

By pre-recording and releasing the VR content explaining the experiment as well as the VR lecture, students can watch it repeatedly at any given time to understand the content.

Support for remote group collaboration

Multiple people (up to 10) can perform the experiment while communicating with each other. In addition, the AI can act as an instructor to explain the experimental method (provided as an option).

Product Breakdown

1. Interactive model of VR laboratory and VR experimental equipment

The 3D data of a real laboratory and experimental equipment can be made available in VR. The movable parts of the experimental equipment (doors, etc.) are movable just like the real ones.

2. VR experiment instruction recording system

Instructor can create and publish VR contents in advance, in which an instructor avatar explains the experimental method.

3. VR realtime communication system

Realtime communication between students participating in the experiment and the instructor is possible through gestures and voice using avatars.

4. Cloud Services

We also provide Web services to manage VR contents related to the experiment and to easily monitor the participation status of students.

Cyber-Physical Experiment System
[ CYPE VRL-002 ]

A new remote experiment that links real and VR experimental equipment.

Features

Remote experiment using actual equipment

Students can operate the real experimental equipment from VR and learn from the actual results.

How to physically operate the actual machine

Robotic arms and IoT devices can be used to accurately reflect the operations on the VR to the real experimental equipment.

Intuitive operation using the VR gloves

By using the “VR glove” with tactile and force feedback functions, the VR experimental equipment can be operated intuitively using both hands.
