This study presents a virtual reality system for maintenance training of motors used in locomotives responsible for transportation of ore. Considering the cost and impact on the logistics chain of a mining company, preventive maintenance is required to reduce fault events and increase motor life. Technical staff training in a real locomotive has been difficult since the motor is long and heavy and hence not available for training . Thus, a virtual reality system offers a low-cost and efficient solution for maintenance training. This work consists in developing the 3D model for the virtual reality engine Unity 3D and proposing an XML module for motor part selection and the game design. We evaluated the simulator with 59 users, obtaining satisfactory results regarding comfort, immersion, usability, and user experience. Tests performed by technical staff validated the potential use in the training routine.
