Firefighting Simulator VR

Task:

Learning how to use a fire extinguisher in conditions that reproduce reality as closely as possible.

Applied Technologies:

C ++, UE4, 3D, CAD

Equipment:

HTC Vive, HTC Vive Pro, Oculus Rift

Commercial use:

VR fire safety simulators help teach staff members to use the selected fire extinguisher model properly and eliminate various types of fires. In virtual reality, you can recreate any type of dangerous situation. Our VR system significantly reduces the time and cost of staff safety training and greatly sharpens reflexes and refines behavior in the case of a real emergency.

The main advantage of the virtual environment in the context of staff or student training is that you do not need to physically build a specialized site reproducing the dangers of the situation being trained for (in this case, simulated fire suppression). There is no need to create, at your expense, a real fire under full control of qualified firefighters.

It is possible to repeatedly simulate a fire and conduct training using virtual reality in any office or building. This flexibility and realism constitute not only a cheaper but also a demonstrably more effective way of training your employees.

Technologically speaking, in the development of this project we used tracking and Leap Motion technologies, which allow the user to use their hands in virtual reality without the need for additional joysticks. With Leap Motion, training becomes much more effective, as it gives you the opportunity to acquire real skill in interacting with a real, physical fire extinguisher during a fire.

Vive Tracker embeds real-world objects into a virtual environment without any additional wire. It just needs to be appended onto a real object that needs to be tracked. Using a number of trackers will allow you to add real-life objects to VR.
