Vidusayura Ship Simulation System


Vidusayura Ship Simulation System is a development of a virtual learning and training environment for maritime education which allows simulating ship models under complicated environment conditions such as wind, wave and sea currents. It can compose six degrees of freedom ship motions (pitch, heave, roll, surge, sway, and yaw) with respect to rudder, throttle and environment conditions.Vidusayura is development of a virtual learning and training environment for maritime education which allows simulating ship models under complicated environment conditions such as wind, wave and sea currents. It can compose six degrees of freedom ship motions (pitch, heave, roll, surge, sway, and yaw) with respect to rudder, throttle and environment conditions.Conventional maritime classroom lectures can only explain ship’s individual phenomena one by one but they are occurring simultaneously so that it is not easy to teach and learn properly. But by using this proposed virtual environment ship’s, various phenomena which are occurring simultaneously can be explained easily. So that proposed virtual environment can be used as a teaching material to demonstrate ships motions under different environment conditions at classroom lectures. Trainees can use this virtual environment and define various environment conditions and study ship motions at their own pace.
 
This project was carried out by the Modelling & Simulation Group of the UCSC and it received funds by the NeLC Project. Vidurayura has won several awards.
