Virtual Auto Expert by GTAFE is a teaching system developed by Shenzhen GTA Education Tech Ltd., which consists of 3D Resources, PPT Editor, Customized Courses, and My Course. Its VR images, integrated with 3D teaching resources such as PPT courseware, VR models, and flash, display complex structural principles in automotive teaching realistically. This strengthens classroom teaching in a comprehensive and attention-capturing manner, which leads to more effective teaching.
The 3D resource library includes 156 VR models, including a general introduction to the engine, crank and connecting rod mechanisms, valve mechanisms, engine supercharging system, cooling system, lubrication system, ignition system, engine start system, clutch, transmission, automotive drivetrain system, wheel and axle, suspension, automotive steering system, automotive brake system, and body-related electrical apparatuses.
The VR PPT editor with its comprehensive functions allows teachers to personalize their edits. Teachers can use the PPT editor to adjust and edit VR courseware, and supplement classroom teaching with an imported 3D resource library (flash, pictures, and videos), and export edited VR PPT courseware for others to use.
- Client-Server (C/S), Model-View-Controller (MVC), and Unity3D engine ensure the authenticity and stability of the simulation effect.
