iVSP: controlling a virtual Voith Schneider Propeller

    With the help of the iVSP (Interactive Voith Schneider Propeller) program you can experience for yourself how a Voith Schneider Propeller (VSP) actually works.

    iVSP 2.1 for windows
    We’ve completely redesigned the iVSP app and added features that make the Voith Schneider Propeller even more realistic in 3D.

    In Version 2.1, the standard ship is a double-ended ferry, which you control with virtual joysticks. The double-ended ferry has four propellers. You control the two fore propellers with the left joystick and the two aft propellers with the right joystick.

    Other new features include:

    • The user interface now has updated functionality that makes the iVSP app easier to use.
    • Steer like the captain of a VSP tug in the new Free Driving Mode. You can try out the maneuvers that are possible with this innovative drive.
    • Are you skilled enough to drive a VSP tug? Find out and master the course in Simulation Training.
    • Compare your results with friends and colleagues on the high score list.
    • Switch at any time from 3D into the views that show the motion or hydrodynamic forces. These show exactly what happens when you operate the VSP in real life.

    iVSP
    Controlling a virtual Voith Schneider Propeller

    "I hear and I forget; I see and I remember; I do and I understand." In full accordance with this quotation by Confucius, Voith Turbo Schneider Propulsion has developed the iVSP (Interactive Voith Schneider Propeller) program in English and German. With the help of this program you can experience for yourself how a Voith Schneider Propeller (VSP) actually works.

    Viewers can play captain by using their mouse to control an on-screen steering wheel and lever, or alternatively, an on-screen joystick. The virtual VSP reacts immediately and visibly to any change in rudder or driving pitch. Kinematic and hydrodynamic viewing options illustrate the actual VSP operation. The relevant forces are shown with arrows in different colors.

    The maneuvers performed by the ship are displayed in the upper right-hand part of the screen. A camera linked to the Voith Water Tractor (VWT) demonstrates its maneuvers from a bird's eye perspective. The compass in the right-hand corner indicates the sailing direction.
