Extensible VR Emergency Preparedness Platform
Emergency preparedness is a cardinal skill required in today's fragile world. Conventionally, individuals acquire knowledge of procedures that they are required to take during an emergency situation through a regimen of training-drills, tabletop exercises, functional exercises and full-scale exercises. These procedures are usually far from reality as these are structured training schedules happening in a utopian environment. To bridge this gap, we developed a generic virtual learning framework. This framework is extensible across multiple scenarios and locations. The proposed platform can complement the conventional emergency training methods to enhance the overall emergency preparedness of private organizations (e.g. workplaces, commercial buildings, etc.) and also indirectly benefit wider communities.
