Experimental platform

1. Virtual simulation experiment teaching platform
The multi-functional virtual simulation laboratory can realize the goal of 30 students/times to carry out virtual simulation experiment projects at the same time. It has immersive 3D stereo display system and professional 3D computers. It will not only be used by the students of this major or department, but can be shared between different majors and colleges to maximize the effectiveness of the laboratory.
