DeepTraining Requirements

Basic requirements for the DeepTraining solution

ROOM REQUIREMENTS

This section provides guidance on the size of the room that is required and information regarding the equipment that needs to be set up in the room.

Measurements

In order to allow for an effective training experience in the chosen room, it first has to fulfill certain requirements regarding its size. We recommend a room is used which measures 5 m x 6 m. This size is necessary to ensure a virtual reality play area of 3 m x 3 m plus a 1 m safety distance to the boundaries of the room on each side of the play area. The additional space is needed to store the equipment.

Furniture

The following items will need to be made available in the room to allow for a successful installation of this equipment.

  • A standard desk measuring at least 120 cm x 80 cm for the DeepTraining workstation
  • A locker measuring 110 cm x 104 cm x 42 cm (w x h x d) to store the virtual reality equipment

This is the area where the
trainee can move freely in
virtual reality. The optimal size
is 3m x 3m.
2
This is the safety area to
protect the trainees and
prevent them from making
contact with the wall. The
ideal safety distance is 1 m.
3
This is the table where the
DeepTraining Workstation will
be placed. Ideal measurements:
120 cm x 80 cm
4
This is a cabinet where the
equipment can be stored
when not used. Ideal
measurements: 110 cm x
104 cm x 42 cm (w x h x d)
5
Windows or other reflective
surfaces should be covered.

Frequently Asked Questions

The DeepTraining system requires a minimum area of 4.5 m x 4.5 m. This allows for a virtual reality play area that measures 2.5 m x 2.5 m and an additional 1 m safety area on all sides.
  • To ensure that the trainee does not make contact with the room walls.
  • To avoid damaging the controllers.
  • To securely store the equipment between training sessions
  • To avoid direct sunlight making contact with the headset
Yes, you can send us floor plans and photos of the room and we check it against our requirements.

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS

This section provides information on which resources the room should have available to it. Please refer to the correct room setup diagram below for a visual representation of these requirements.

  • Access to switchable power connection for wall-mounted base stations (110-240 VAC, 50 Hz-60 Hz)
  • Access to six power plugs behind the computer for the DeepTraining workstation (110-240 VAC, 50 Hz-60 Hz)
  • Access to stable internet connection for the DeepTraining workstation. An Ethernet connection is recommended.
    Find the network requirements on the following page.
  • Locations on the walls for mounting two base stations and one Wireless link box including proper cable routing. The mounting of this equipment requires holes to be drilled into the walls.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Electrician – Prepare power plugs and ethernet port
  • Facility manager – Drill holes for the holders and setup the table
  • IT Technician – Setup the workstation and equipment
For the following countries we can provide country specific plugs: 

  • EU countries
  • USA

Please ask our support team for all other countries.

The system does not rely on an internet connection for normal operation. There are metrics collected in the background and pushed to our Microsoft servers. In case you perform training offline a log is created on the computer. Furthermore, Internet is required to keep the device updated.

Bandwidth requirements: 

  • Daily usage: < 100 MB / training session
  • Updates: < 5 GB / update – usually monthly

Improper Setup

A training area clear of all obstacles is required. In particular, the following factors should be taken into consideration when choosing a room. These should all be avoided as they can have a negative and potentially dangerous impact on the training experience.

  • Reflecting surfaces – can negatively impact the tracking used by the virtual reality hardware which can create an unstable visual experience for the trainee.
  • Slippery carpets or floors – could cause the trainee to fall over and injure themselves.

  • Disruptive cable routing – should be routed around the edges of the room and not into the centre of the room where the Virtual Reality trainee could fall over them.

  • Equipment or furniture inside the training area – can block the trainees path and negatively impact on the training session. It could also cause the trainee to fall and injure themselves.
