VNPP VR - Virtual Nuclear Powerplant

Role: Lead Developer.

The Virtual Nuclear Power Plant (VNPP) project has been a collaboration between Westinghouse Sweden AB (WSE), Kärnkraftsäkerhet och Utbildning AB (KSU) and Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE) – Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS). The project has been done within the Strategic innovation project Processindustriell IT och Automation support by Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems, FORMAS and the Swedish Energy Agency.

As a lead developer, I played a leading role in the development of a real-time radiation-simulation system that is completely implemented in Unity, that is accurate and reliable to test real-world cases, and runs effeciently in VR.

We used modern technologies like "Nvidia® Optix" to achieve a high-performance raytracing that is used to accurately calucalte radiation from tens of thousands of points in real-time, in VR.
