We are excited to present Morild Navigator, the next generation bridge simulator based on VR-technology.
Morild Interaktiv launched the world’s first VR bridge simulator back in 2013. Now we present the next generation which allows you to train ship navigation wherever and whenever you want. In addition, you can collaborate with you colleagues on the same bridge - even if he or she is located on the other side of the world.
Morild Navigator is a full mission bridge simulator based on VR technology. Unlimited number of users can train together in the same scenario, on the same or on different vessels. This is done using avatars – enabling you to see and talk with other participants in the training exercise. And the best part – they can be situated all around the world and join you in the same scenario. The solution scales very well to complex scenarios with many vesels and participants.
The key to making the best VR trainings simulators is dedication to interaction. We have developed our own VR interaction engine which makes hand interaction natural to the end user, enabling them to focus on the training exercise instead of operating the training simulator (read more about this here). Morild Navigator provides advanced physics based hand interaction which enables you to operate the fully virtual bridge consisting of joysticks, handles, buttons, radio, searchlight panel and much much more.
We also present a new innovation in Morild Navigator – interactive virtual touch-screen displays. This functionality is used for the ECDIS, radar and conning applications on the bridge, and provides easy and accessible handling. And, since the bridge is virtual, we can integrate any 3rd party application of your choice on the virtual tocuh-screen displays. This is another component that opens up a whole range of new possibilities.
Morild Navigator also features a new ocean system with advanced spectrum simulation. This provides stunning visualisation and realistic vessel behaviour. The system features both JONSWAP and Pierson-Moskowitz Spectrums.
An integral part of Morild Navigator is the Morild Builder instructor station and scenario builder. With the Morild Builder you can create, control and manipulate complex scenarios in realtime. The application is also used as instructor station during scenario training, and for playback analysis in debriefing. It can also be used as a tool to plan operations, and it features realtime weather and sea state parameters, daylight system, advanced voyage route editing and much much more. We can deliver any geospecific location of your choice for your scenarios.
Morild Navigator is developed in close co-operation with nautical universities and experienced ship captains. It can be delivered both as a mobile or stationary solution, and since the hardware cost is low, it is cost-effective to scale up for complex scenarios with multiple users and vessels.
Morild Navigator can also be delivered as custom solution with your specific vessel, bridge and handling equipment.
