Virtual reality (VR) techniques are becoming increasingly popular. The use of computer modelling, and visualization is no longer uncommon in the area of ergonomics and occupational health and safety. This book explains studies conducted in a simulated, virtual world make it possi...ble to test new solutions of designed workstations, offering a high degree of ease for introducing modifications and eliminating risk and work-related accidents. Virtual reality techniques offer a wide range of possibilities for people with disabilities and special needs assisting them in the process of adapting to workstations increasing cognitive abilities of elderly and using collaborative robots. The book includes testing protective devices, safety systems as well as numerical reconstruction of accidents at work to identify real causes of accidents. It will show the use of computer simulations in generic virtual environments and environments modelled on a target workstation to allow user adaptability. The book will provide examples of using virtual reality for training and improving workers' skills. With the use of virtual reality (VR) safety managers make it possible to train employees and test new solutions of designed workstations, offering a high degree of ease for introducing modifications and eliminating risk related to work. They virtual world will provide the perfect tools to support the engineering of safer workplace environment.Read more

Andrzej Grabowski, PhD (Eng), DSc, Head of the Laboratory of Virtual Reality Techniques at the Department of Safety Engineering at the Central Institute for Labour Protection - National Research Institute Graduate of the Faculty of Physics at the Warsaw University of Technology. His work has been concerned with issues related to neural networks, the application of machine vision in safety systems, nonlinear systems dynamics and the evolution of complex networks and propagation phenomena that take place inside them. Currently, in his work he conducts studies on the application of virtual reality in various fields, including training, cognitive functioning, telepresence and teleoperation and support rehabilitation. He also works on the development of VR techniques conducted; for example, vehicle simulators, HMD type wireless VR goggles, wireless VR gloves with force-feedback and motion capture visual measurement systems are being developed in the laboratory.
