DROPS VR Introduction

DROPS VR is an initiative by the DROPS Asia Chapter administered by Drilling VR to create a free Virtual Reality based awareness training and collaboration tool.

Students will learn through a series of real world simulated assignments to

  • Understand the potential of dropped objects
  • Recognize common causes of dropped objects
  • Methods for preventing dropped objects and preventing harm
  • Become familiar with reference tools and publications of the DROPS Forum

DROPS is all about collaboration and the DROPS VR will be a tool where members can

  • Virtually remotely meet in a range of Industrial simulated environments
  • Interact with the Virtual Environment by pointing at and moving objects
  • Speak with each other through a multiplayer avatar system
  • Designed for subject matter experts to meet and collaborate for the prevention of dropped objects

DROPS VR will be built collaboratively with volunteer subject matter experts and is made possible through sponsorship. We currently have a demo version with a few environments and scenarios and will gradually build upon this until the first full version is ready.

If you would like to get involved, you will need an Oculus Go Virtual Headset available in most countries at around 150 to 200 USD. After obtaining the device, you will need to register an account with this website and hit the "download" button on the top menu.

If you have any questions about this project, please do not hesitate to contact the DROPS Asia Secretary Joachim van der Meulen through the contact page
