Utilising Crane VR

What is it?

  • The VR allows a slinger to see exactly what a crane driver can see from the cab making them aware of blind spots.
  • The system helps operators understand the slew restriction area at track side.
  • Full 4D simulation of site with the surrounding buildings and area.

Why we used?

  • Demonstrates the lifting activities to slingers, crane operators, Lendlease managers, Network Rail, CBRE facilities management and the general public.
  • Full 4D simulation of site with the surrounding buildings and area.
  • Gives the user the full ability to fly through the site at any point during the build.

Was it Successful?

  • All users have had a positive reaction to the scheme and impressed by its usability.
  • It has contributed to a better understanding between the roles of the lifting team and the trade contractors.
  • Each crane is fully operable with full movement within the VR model.
  • It has been used by over 200 individuals including Network Rail station staff and the general public at the Kings Cross Contractor Safety day.

The Next Steps?

  • The system is being upgraded following some feedback to enhance the realism of the site.
  • We will continue to roll this out on the project for all interested parties and stakeholders.
  • In the future crane operators will be trained on this system before they take a step into the cab of a crane.
  • This software is being used to create automated crane movement and lifting by creating a standard format of work for the future of the construction industry.
