CONCEPT: Augmented Reality Emergency Simulator

Concept, Group 02, WS1314

After the previous week’s user research we deduced that there was need for a realistic emergency simulator. Existing methods do not provide realistic environments or are too expensive in both cost and effort to be carried out regularly.

Therefore we propose: A.R.E.S. – an Augmented Reality Emergency Simulator

It consists of a combination of physical equipment like exercise-dolls and a virtual environment. The user is provided with a pair of glasses that creates an augmented reality setting which the user can interact with. The room itself is equipped with a surround sound system that enhances the immersion.

Audience members can follow the actions of the trainee via two screens in the lecture hall. One shows the blank room with the trainee and doll, the other one displays the augmented setting. In addition the instructor is able to intervene and modify the current setting by triggering new actions.

Coming up: Prototyping.
