Workplace Simulator Laboratory (W-SIM)
Located in the Cliff Fielding Research Innovation and Engineering building on the Laurentian University campus, the CROSH Workplace Simulator is a one-of-a-kind facility providing state-of-the-art infrastructure for the design of research studies or service contracts that solve real-world workplace problems through work-task simulation.
The Workplace Simulator consists of four components: a robotic vibration and motion platform, a virtual reality eye-tracking system, a metabolic cart, and an environmental chamber. It is the only lab in the world capable of combining these pieces of equipment into one integrated system.
Together, or individually, the Workplace Simulator and its components can precisely and reliably recreate workplace conditions, enabling the testing of equipment, systems, and people in standardized laboratory conditions.
