The purpose of this work is to develop a virtual simulation system for crane-operating training. It includes an operating chamber to simulate the driving chamber of a truck crane and a motion chair to offer additional vibrating effect. The virtual scenes, generated by a VR software, is displayed on a screen in front of the operating chamber through a 3D projector. A data communication structure is proposed to deliver the information among three personal computers. The hardware configuration of the simulator is discussed and the VR techniques used to generate the virtual scenes are addressed. A performance evaluation in terms of the frame rate is provided also.
