Equipment and Systems of Virtual Reality

  • Body movements 3-D Position Sensors.
  • Gestures sensing gloves
  • Virtual feedback is sent via Stereo Displays.
  • The tools and equipment used in Virtual Reality are divided into 3 parts.
  • Stage
  • Desktop
  • Mirror World

Development Process in Virtual Reality & Scientific Studies in This Field

  • Virtual reality is a system made to mislead human feelings.
  • This shows that human is the most important factor in VR researches.
  • The better control in a person’s senses, the more successful the system.
  • It is possible to change the value of gravitational acceleration or reduce the atmospheric attraction to zero or a predetermined value, which cannot be done in a real laboratory, but can only be created in virtual environments.
  • Learning with Virtual Reality includes an interactive, non-uniform teaching model that will reach students’ sense of sight, smell, hearing, touch, and hearing.

Functionality in Virtual Reality

  • It is a simulation environment where computer graphics are used to create a world looking real.
  • Virtual reality is the activation of all senses and making them a part of the environment and event.
  • The user can not only see and control graphic objects on the screen, but also touch and feel them.

The Most Common Areas Where Virtual Reality Is Used

  • In the war preparation, it is created in the direction of virtual scenarios in military fields
  • In engineering fields especially in nuclear studies &Technician training (Cars Engine Assembly, Water Pump Assembly)
  • In medical education, especially in applied medicine. A doctor can perform very dangerous surgery easily, safely and repeatedly.
  • In order to educate students in foreign language education
  • Musicians can produce music in virtual environments
  • Cultural service with virtual museums
  • It is possible to conduct experiments that would be dangerous or impossible under normal conditions.
  • Training Technicians
  • In OHS Trainings

Education and Virtual Reality

  • The development levels of societies are generally measured by the science and technology they produce.
  • One of the most positive aspects is that it gives the opportunity to work safely by being in an artificial environment that reflects the real situations and to experience without facing the dangers that exist in the real world.
  • Cons: Complex and Expensive
  • Virtual reality technology maximizes students’ learning in education by interacting with the environments they live in.
  • In every field, it will be possible to use this technology which will constitute the educational environments of the future. Because the student learns by doing and living in virtually created environments.
