VR DEVELOPMENT / TRAINING SIMULATION / GAME DEVELOPMENT
Partnering with Tacmed Australia, we identified an opportunity to use Virtual Reality simulation to train and develop first responder skills in high threat / low frequency events. Training is a vital element of police, ambulance, fire & rescue agencies.The ability to recreate complex and dangerous situations safely and consistently is a game changer for first responders.
The scenarios were modeled on real life emergencies and were developed in Unreal Engine using a combination of motion capture, animation and 3d rendering to recreate real paramedic tools and protocols. The simulations deliver a highly stressful and overwhelming experience designed to test the participants critical decision making skills in a real time environment.
We are continuing to develop additional scenarios and are now working agencies and higher education institutes in the USA and Australia to build a library of training content and a platform that serves first responders globally. Evidence so far has indicated that the VR training is highly engaging and skill retention is higher than traditional training protocols. We have developed a separate entity called EmergiSim to continue this work.
