A screenshot of the 3DVit training tool that allows astronauts to run through complicated hardware setups before doing them on the International Space Station. Here the Haptics/Interact experiment setup is shown.
Astronaut teachers are always looking for ways to improve their training, and the International Training Control Board (ITCB) is looking for ways to reduce the time spent training astronauts on ground and replace it with efficient “On-Board Training”.
ESA’s 3D virtual training software allows astronauts to run through tasks step-by-step with 3D graphics. This experiment is called 3D Visual Training, or 3DViT for short.
