Bucket & Boom Truck

The Bucket & Boom Truck simulation is intended to train linemen on the use of a joystick-controlled bucket truck. This simulation allowed for operation of the truck’s arm by manipulation of an in-world controller, as well as the ability to fix the power pole with in-world tools. A 3D camera was used to create a realistic 3D environment for the scene. There is full simulation of the bucket truck’s controls, as well as the ability to use the tools to fix the pole within the scene.
