Vortex is a simulation platform to simulate robot operations in real time, either for operator training or during design phase. It is made by CM Labs Simulations Inc.
The company recently introduced the Vortex 6.6, the latest upgrade. An example of the software for robotics applications can be seen here, where it is used to simulate remote operated robots for petrochemical inspection applications. The software also has been used to test explosive ordinance disposal (EOD) robots and train EOD operators.
