Fondazione SAFE, as the coordinator of VERTgO Project, is excited to announce that the paper titled “Challenges in Virtual Reality Training for CBRN Events” has been officially published by the Multimodal Technologies and Interactions Journal. The paper is part of the Special Edition dedicated to “Designing EdTech and Virtual Learning Environments,” which is closely associated with the XR Salento Conference.
VERTIgO is an EU-funded initiative on VR applications in CBRN military training and the published paper shows how the project is striving to improve the CBRN training experience through virtual reality.
As our world becomes increasingly complex, the need for effective training methods to prepare responders for CBRN scenarios is more critical than ever. This paper explores the challenges faced in implementing VR technology for such training and proposes innovative solutions to overcome them.
Virtual reality (VR)-based training solutions are a promising technology to reduce training costs and decrease the risk of personal and support controlled and replicable training; indeed, this paper highlights the immense potential of VR technology in creating realistic and immersive training environments that accurately simulate the complexities and hazards of CBRN events, enabling responders to develop crucial skills in a safe and controlled environment.
The publication of this paper in the Multimodal Technologies and Interactions Journal marks an important milestone for the VERTIgO Project and the work it does every day to improve CBRN training courses.
We are grateful for their recognition of the importance of this study and are honoured to be part of the Special Edition associated with the XR Salento Conference.
