After Action Reviewing for a Distributed Untethered Virtual Reality Training Simulation

Master Thesis

About This Topic

The aim of this master thesis to develop a distributed system to allow for immersive training of multiple first responders within a virtual reality environment. Based on the current system . comprising a single user training environment using a mobile HMD (GearVR) and different types of 3D navigational input (game pad, omni-directional treadmill) - a distribution layer needs to be integrated to allow for multi-user training. To achieve a novel way for training debriefing, an editor functionality as well as a new after action review module are developed that records all user's 3D input and actions. The novel modules will be tested with actual stakeholders, such as fire brigade training centers.

We are looking for highly motivated students with a solid background in programming and computer graphics. We provide you with the chance to work with the latest VR hardware and a topic to gain a deeper understanding in immersive virtual reality.
