Chongqing Wanzhou Vocational Education Center

Virtual Simulation Experiment Base

In 2018, upon the application of Wanzhou Vocational Education Center, the experts from all parties discussed and approved, and approved by the Chongqing Wanzhou District Education Committee to build a virtual simulation experiment base. The virtual simulation base takes the application of Schneider Electric technology as the core and aims at strengthening practical training to build a teaching and training base mainly based on VR (Virtual Reality) and MR (Mixed Reality). As the implementation of the project, Adjacentech, based on mixed reality technology, combined with teaching use scenarios, and integrated with Schneider Electric technology, to develop teaching and training MR applications, to achieve classroom teaching and practical teaching scenarios, to help students use mixed reality scenarios for learning and training in electrical technology.

Through research according to the needs of teachers and students in the school, it was found that connecting the experiment box to the power supply is a difficulty in the training project. On the one hand, the experiment box is limited, and all students cannot experiment in person. There is a great risk that the wiring experiment can only be carried out under the one-to-one tutoring of professional teachers. Combining this training pain point, Adjacentech found that it is very suitable for using MR mixed reality technology to guide the wiring of the experimental box. In the real wiring scenario, the MR equipment is used for information prompts and knowledge points to explain, to help students quickly master the wiring process.

Based on this training scenario, Adjacentech developed an exclusive MR mixed reality application. This application is used as an auxiliary tool for students to learn the electrical TT grounding experiment box experiment. It can guide students how to correctly connect the experiment box and tell the principle of knowledge which allows students to better understand electrical knowledge.

In the class, by using mixed reality HoloLens glasses to assist in the study of electrical equipment, it can help students to understand the knowledge points taught by the teacher in a friendly way. Even if they do not understand, they can also use virtual teaching to check for gaps and follow the guidance of auxiliary wiring experiments which deepens the impression of learning.

After class, the use of mixed reality HoloLens glasses can help students learn independently, whether it is a preview or a review. They can study comprehensive knowledge points independently, in a three-dimensional whole system, beyond the one-dimensional or two-dimensional learning of books. It is efficient and helps in more thorough understanding of knowledge content.

At present, the virtual simulation experiment base has been officially put into use to help teachers and students to teach and practice electrical knowledge. By introducing advanced virtual reality technology, auxiliary teaching is conducted to improve teaching efficiency and teaching quality.
