Abstract

Virtual Reality (VR) simulations can be a very powerful tool in the hands of architects,engineers and scientists. With it enhances features it could be a turning point where it gives a new interesting and exciting environment that could motivate students’ learning and interest in particular subjects.The research problem under consideration presented in this paper is important on several theoretical and practical grounds.Physical robot costs thousands of dollars.Many institutions cannot afford to facilitate enough physical robots to cater for all robotics students.Due to this problem, it is necessary to have a virtual robot system for the students to practice on it before actually operating on the real robot.The mission of this system is to make students familiar and understand the task operation of the robot before class, during and after class.The steps involved in achieving the objective were conceptual background studies on robotics teaching, prototype design and development and testing on polytechnic students who took robotics course.The issues concern the statistical data found on testing, costs involved and the relevance of technological developments of VR in robotics teaching were discussed.
