About Our Team and Name "Opus"

We are senior students in Computer Engineering Department of Middle East Technical University. Opus is a latin word. In middle ages, Opus has the meaning of "product or creation of human intelligence", to describe something is not nature made nature but man made, like great temple of Iupiter or divine poetry. In classical era of Europe it is used to generally describe musical compositions or other means of creativity and art. Nowadays, its used by composers to name their classical compositions like Opus 1, Opus 2. Considering all usage of word "Opus" in history, we all agreed on giving name Opus 144 (all our student ids start with 144) to our company's name. That will be very fitting since what we do as computer engineers is composing bits into a greater work to create something meaningful like Beethoven composing single notes into a great symphony. In the end, what we get is not a creation of nature, but our minds..

Motivation

The members has made many project to date, in smaller subsets of the current team. OPUS 144 is set up to create a senior design project, which holds an innovative approach to simulation and training systems. Simulation systems are a center of attention from the day they appeared. Many professions now make us of computer simulated environments, and even casual users use simulations for enjoyment. Training professional personnel using simulators is often a master, cheaper and more productive solution than training them "on the field". Professional simulations range from military craft simulations to disaster management simulations. These simulation systems also bring portability and flexibility to users. For example, even home PC configurations can be used for teaching/training pilots of the basics of flight control.

OPUS 144 extends this simulation concept into our daily-life. In current sociological system, a person cannot exist on his/her own and is dependent on what others produce, while the others are dependent on what he/she produces. Furthermore, many actions require input from many persons and efficiency is always a critical issue. All of this process is highly cooperative and requires a well balanced communication and organization among the members of interacting actors. What we aim is to create a virtual reality which aims to increase team collaboration efficiency.

In result, OPSIMUS holds an innovative approach to simulation systems, based on collaborative operation management. The main focus is not on training a specific type of group, it is on teaching people how to communicate effectively and efficiently for a common goal. The basic motivation is that, as we complete our senior project, we will introduce new concepts in training individuals to co-operate by this new approach to simulation systems.

Project "OPSIMUS"

As the name implies (Operational Simulations Systems), OPSIMUS is a simulation system in which the aim of the users is to complete an operational task.

The basis of accomplishment for the users is flawless communication between them. Without collaboration between users, it is not possible to complete operations, just as in our daily lives. This turns OPSIMUS into a realistic ground for teaching collaboration techniques.

The demo deployment of OPSIMUS includes a simple, high-tech, futuristic environment which was build from scratch for this project. This new environment allows many types of users to be able to benefit from the product, after a fast learning period of the systems defined in the simulation. It is both a fun and a valuable lesson to be able to experience this new environment and to complete given exciting tasks.

Development

OPSIMUS development is finished. If you are interested in, download the final package or contact us via project mail adress.
