The research project focused on how virtual reality (VR) could create a non-immersive
environment and improve in increasing safety awareness at offshore platform. The main
problem is the typical training talk usually use video and audio presentation which
cannot provide the walkthrough movement. The aim of this project is to develop and
design Virtual Helicopter Landing Platform (V-HELP) application which allows users to
explore the virtual platform environment. The objectives of this project are to design and
develop helicopter landing platform; to visualize movement and facilitate understanding
in VR; and at the same time identify components and characteristics of the virtual
environment for adequate realism. In completion the project, the framework used is
based on part of the waterfall "modeling theory. The phases involved in the framework
used for project development is the analysis phase, design and development phase,
integration and testing phase and lastly evaluation phase. Developments tools have been
used in the project are 3D Maya 5..0.1 and Macromedia Flash MX software. As a result
from the evaluation conducted, shows that most of the evaluators are satisfied with the
project. They think that the realism of the prototype can be improved in virtual
environment through enhancement on chosen the suitable textures materials and enable
user control during walkthrough. As a conclusion, the research project show that Virtual
Environment are very useful and more effective for the offshore safety training
compared to the conventional method.
