CBRNe Training in Virtual Environments
Virtual reality (VR) is increasingly gaining acceptance in the education and training sector. The potential of the immersive training technology has been extensively investigated in first half of the SHOTPROS project. The presentation provided a comprehensive overview of current training solutions as well as of research challenges in the field of VR for education and training in the security sector. Based on a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threat) analysis, the findings were translated into practical guidelines.
The presentation aimed to enhance the awareness of what extensions are already possible with VR in CBRNe training, how these can be implemented, and which developments are still required.
