Virtual Machina (in short V-Machina) is a project funded by the EIT Manufacturing (EIT M), which deals with the familiarization and training of students and practitioners working with industrial machinery and robots via Virtual Reality (VR).

What is V-Machina?

V-Machina consists in the creation of a learning environment that allows users to get a direct, immersive experience with selected activities related to the manufacturing sector. These experiences are monitored and designed around each user by tailoring the simulations to his/her very profile, taking care of physical and gender diversity, with particular attention to the identification of unsafe interactions and psychological status via activity recognition.

Paradigm shifts in education

V-Machina will contribute to the manufacturing community and, more in general, to society by boosting three paradigmatic shifts in education.


Indicates the easy modelling of M&R by means of the instruments provided by the VME.


Points to the possibility of offering a tailored experience via the VME, without any gender and diversity discrimination.


Encompasses the inclusion of emotions into the human-machine interaction, thus paving the way for an unprecedented virtual experience.
