A Virtual Space with Real IoT Data
Authors: Stephenson, D., Hoxey, T. and Faiers, A.
Large quantities of live data about an environment can be easily and cheaply collected using a network of small sensors (IoT). However these sensors typically do not display any information directly, and it can be difficult to understand the data collected. Conversely VR environments used for training, require scenarios to be created, populated with rich data. By linking the VR system directly to the IoT data broker we import the live (or recorded) status of real hardware from an industrial environment into the virtual world allowing a remote viewer to monitor the operation of the system.
