Multisensory Platform enhancing the Virtual Reality Experience
SHOTPROS aims to develop innovative police training enhanced by Virtual Reality (VR). To make the VR as realistic as possible, a Mobile Multi-Sensory Platform (MMSP) was prototyped to increase the level of immersion and sense of presence.
Most VR applications are based on audio-visual stimuli alone. SHOTPROS strives to go beyond state of the art and therefore developed the MMSP as a research prototype, aimed towards making multi-user VR training more tangible, realistic and to evoke realistic behavior. The MMSP is equipped with four modules to trigger human senses:
Those elements can be added in coordination with the scenario designer to make the scenario more realistic. AIT conducted a study during the Field Trials in Selm and Berlin to investigate, whether multi-sensory enhancement of stressors leads to an increase in stress, threat perception and presence.
The final research results will be presented at the final conference in September in Ranst/Belgium.
Final Conference 14th – 15th September 2022/Ranst, Belgium
