Master of disaster: Virtual-Reality Response Training in Disaster Management

communication medium

Proceedings of VRCAI 2019


To be prepared for flooding events, disaster response personnel has to be trained to execute developed action plans. We present a collaborative operator-trainee setup for a flood response training system, by connecting an interactive flood simulation with a VR client, that allows to steer the remote simulation from within the virtual environment, deploy protection measures, and evaluate results of different simulation runs. An operator supervises and assists the trainee from a linked desktop application.
