9:50 AM Melbourne Water Case Study: Sewer Walk Simulator – A Fully Immersive Training System

Asset engineers that are in charge of designing sewer and underground assets are never given the opportunity to actually see what it’s like to work underground. Traditional training methods do not give people the understanding of the hazards of working in the sewer network. As such, Melbourne Water has developed a Sewer Walk Simulator, in which users can be lowered into a virtual sewer to walk, see, hear, feel, and even smell what it’s like to be in their sewer network.
  • Understanding how the simulator is used to help users in identifying potential hazards of the environment
  • Utilising a randomised system and different emergency scenarios for training different users
  • Overcoming risks in adoption as well as challenges and barriers in building the simulator
