The presentation will explore the challenges encountered in developing and deploying cutting-edge, specialized VR systems tailored for demanding applications in industrial and healthcare settings. The first part of the talk will introduce a sophisticated digital twin-style training system for electricians working with high and medium-voltage power systems. This system’s main challenge lies in accurately replicating real-world infrastructure and the interactions of human operators while still allowing for flexible, no-code customization of scenarios within the company’s resources. This was accomplished by adopting a flexible VR system framework, integrating knowledge management practices and semantic modelling. The second part will detail the development of a unique solution designed to aid individuals with hand disabilities in performing therapeutic exercises. This involved creating an anatomically tailored 3D-printed hand orthosis equipped with custom sensors, serving as an alternative to conventional VR controllers. The successful implementation of both solutions was made possible by leveraging the expertise of interdisciplinary engineering teams. The talk will demonstrate how, with the right approach, VR technology can effectively integrate into professional practices in both industrial and healthcare domains.
