Mines are often located at distant locations that are not easily reachable, furthermore accessing them requires a lot of safety measures. As a result mining students don’t have easy access to mines, which is necessary for their education.

The aim this project is to build a new Virtual Reality tool utilizing the usage of the Oculus Rift, in order to allow students, workers and researchers to access different existing mines in a virtual world. Different processes will be simulated; starting from the safety procedure to operating different machinery.
