WebLVC Server Apps

MAK WebLVC Server includes three kinds of apps to help you be successful using and building innovative interfaces to your complex simulation systems.

  • The Training System Demonstrator.
  • Web application development examples.
  • Fully functioning, standalone applications.

Training System Demonstrator

The  Training System Demonstrator is a set of higher-level out-of-the-box applications that provide a broad capability that can be configured for use in your scenarios. The Commander lets you task entities on a 2D symbolic map display; the Instructor lets you inject faults into the running simulation scenario; the Viewer presents streams of 3D scene imagery on your browser; the Controller lets you fly the eyepoint around; and the Presenter lets you set up saved views to replay presentations. We’re hosting these applications online so you can experience them right now.

  • Commander – The Commander app displays simulation entities as 2D icons on a map. Users can touch the entities to inspect the state of the entities or to give them new simulation tasks. This clean and simple interface provides a powerful capability in the hands of anyone with a web browser on a desktop or mobile tablet.
  • Instructor – The Instructor app is a simple interface that allows the instructor to inject faults into the scenario and to change the environmental conditions and time of day in the simulation. In the online Training System Demonstrator, you can play, pause, and rewind the VR-Forces simulation that is hosted in our Cambridge, MA office. You can put a ship in a state of distress and watch the reaction of the nearby entities. Attack a destroyer and watch it fight back, or shoot down an opposing force aircraft.
  • Viewer – The VR-Vantage Viewer lets you see in 3D what’s going on inside the simulation scenario. The scenes you see in the online Training System Demonstrator are being rendered by VR-Vantage hosted in our Cambridge, MA office and served to the VR-Vantage Viewer on your browser. Multiple people all over the world can be observing this simulation at the same time. Try it with two devices. It works on phones, too.
  • Controller – The VR-Vantage Controller lets you move around the eyepoint used by the VR-Vantage Viewer. This is another example of making purpose-built applications to simplify a single function.
  • Presenter – With the Presenter app, save views of events that happen during a scenario and use them to make a time synchronized presentation of the activity. (We’re using the Presenter in the online Training System Demonstrator to keep the view interesting when no one is using the controls.)
