distributed groups of technical trainees in a constructive learningspace is one challenge of the DERIVE project.
The envisaged system will allow complex real and virtual mechatronic systems to work together wherever in the world they may be distributed. The internet, virtual reality plus new kinds of sensor-couplings provide the technological basis.
hardware equipment is anintegral part of technical training. Without experience of hardware, trainees have difficulties to handle practical tasks and solve real world problems in industry.
The DERIVE learning environment smoothly integrates equipment and supports full hardware in-the-loop functionality.
worlds as 3-dimensional interaction spaces on computers are one of the key issues of modern IT technology.
In DERIVE, we utilise virtual mechatronic systems as a consistent and intuitive user interface to simulated parts or even real parts at remote sites.
is not only a matter of assimilating factknowledge. Social and organisational abilitiesare key qualifications especially if teamwork is required.
The DERIVE learning project orientation intechnical training, providing a platform forself-managed andcollaborative learning.
