1. User Interface
1.1. Main Interface
RoBIM Survey is a First Person View (FPV) based simulator. The main interface includes four major components: main view, centre pointer, hint panel, and mini map. The main view shows the 3D environment in the simulator. The centre pointer is a "+" shape that is fixed on the centre of your screen. When the centre pointer hovers on a controllable object (e.g., equipment, tripod, ground surface, etc.), a hint panel with operation instructions will pop out on the right bottom corner.
1.2. Control Mode Interface
When you enter the control mode for the instrument (i.e., level or total station), the interface will show the simulated view of the instrument. Similar to the main interface, the upright corner will have a mini map, and the bottom right corner will have a hint panel listing detailed instructions. A measurement panel will be at the bottom left corner to show the measurement results, such as instrument height, zenith angle (total station only), horizontal angle (total station only), distance to the prism (total station only).
