VR Career Simulation
In the Robotic Welding Operator simulation, the explorer will work in a facility that manufactures engines for wind turbines. Here they will learn to set-up and program robotic welding arms to weld the engines. First the explorer will select the right types of robot arms based off of a work order. They will then learn to select the correct parameters for each type of robot arm. The explorer will also need to determine where the robot arms will weld either through pattern selection or location selection. This simulation has an emphasis on problem-solving and time management. The explorer must follow a very precise work order and ensure that deadlines are met.
