- Virtual Reality (VR) technology is increasingly introduced into emergency response training
- Too little is known however about the effectiveness of its use to train emergency professionals
- Project VR Effect aims at collecting and analysing VR training data to validate its effectiveness and define areas where VR technology can be applied in training
- The initial focus of Project VR Effect is on firefighting skills training (nozzle handling and fire suppression)
Triple Helix Innovation
Project VR Effect is a “triple helix” innovation project in which Academia, End Users and Industry work together to innovate and improve education and training for fire & rescue professionals.
