Title: PLC and Petri Net training based on a 3D virtual car park modeling and control
Issue Date: 2009
Abstract: This paper describes a PC application, behaving as a virtual maquette, that emulates a threedimensionalreal world where an external PLC controls its behaviour receiving feedback from theenvironment. The developed interface connects the PLC to the PC. The virtual maquette iscomposed by a car parking where user requests gate open order while the PLC supervises gateopen/close command, parking availability lights and free parking places. The virtual maquettealso supports a Petri net viewer where the car park behaviour is modelled. State changes andresources allocation can be seen in real time. The virtual maquette supports different ways ofcontrol, allowing several simultaneous student groups to work on different solutions.
