Industry Problem

In the field, locate technicians are frequently called upon to be part physicist, part electrical engineer and part damage prevention expert in complex electromagnetic environments and high-demand ticket situations. Each year, enormous resources are invested into ensuring on-site field techs are ready and capable for this responsibility.

However, regardless of the amount of hours spent in training, it is impossible to know whether or not a field tech has truly grasped the ‘craft’ of locating and what represents a ‘good locate’ vs. an uncertain situation. It is often not known if this is the case until it’s too late and an asset is damaged.

The industry desperately lacks an asset-safe environment where field techs can directly interact, observe and understand how to navigate these complex, real-world locate situations.

Particularly, an immersive environment is needed where the high degree of training, skill, experience and attention to detail that is required for a successful locate operation can be taught, reinforced and evaluated.

No Safe Environment to Reinforce Training

The industry desperately needs an environment where the high degree of skill necessary for a successful locate operation can be monitored and reinforced without the risk of damaging assets.

Significant Training Costs

An enourmous amount of time and money is spent each year training field technicians through training programs and buddy-system locating.

No Trainer Feedback

It is impossible to know whether or not a field tech has truly grasped the ‘craft’ of locating until it’s often too late and an asset is damaged.

Why UTTO®  Virtual Locate Simulator

UTTO’s breakthrough technologies delivers qualitative assurance of locator performance.

Virtual Locate Simulator

UTTO’s VR simulation modes create locate experiences as if the field technician is in the real world. The locate device behaves as if it were detecting pipes and cables under true electromagnetic signal conditions (both simple and complex).

  • Accelerate the training process while improving training quality
  • Compatible and functional with any chosen locate device
  • Simulate a variety of buried asset types, such as pipelines, cables, etc.
  • Train and locate in an immersive 3D environment without risking assets in the field
  • Get rid of the need to “shotgun” for months at a time with another technician
  • Multiple ‘real world’ electromagnetic scenarios stored
  • Trainer selects ‘locate scenarios’ from a variety of difficulties
  • Tricky interference signals for beginner, intermediate and advanced courses
  • Evaluation and score of training performance
