A new version of the ‘On The Ri’ (OTR) software has been released. OTR has all the capabilities of a full-size simulator but is compact enough to be transported to remote locations to train drilling crews in all elements of its operations, from well control to drilling and crane and lifting.
The new software incorporates even more realistic graphics and an enhanced instructor-free learning management system (LMS), making it easier and more engaging to follow learning programmes. It was developed in conjunction with Neutron VR, which like Drilling Systems is part of the 3T Energy Group. Neutron’s heritage is rooted firmly in the gaming industry as both of its founders previously working for games developer, Eutechnyx, with extensive experience in creating striking visuals and immersive experiences.
As well as an updated touch control screen system and highly immersive on-screen graphics, the OTR’s new software update includes shortened learning exercises with instant performance feed-back to enhance learning. The software also uses a cloud hosted system, allowing user data to be uploaded remotely and synchronised across different units so someone could start an exercise on one OTR and finish the same programme on another as well as providing a dashboard on user performance.
