The accident was simulation a helicopter transporting a rx appliance. At take-off, a human mistake caused an accident between the helicopter and a fuel tank; this created a fire and a subsequent radioactive leak contaminating the area.
In this instance wearing the VR optics the team intervene on the scene with radioactivity measurement tools, the team isolate the area and create a decontamination block for a first-hand treatment of possible victims.
VR and AR experience can give a real-time feedback, including the test evaluation through an automatically assigned score (like a videogame) and/or by recording and rewatching the performance from any angle, even from the subject’s point of view: in this way we can introduce a very in-depth evaluation system which is nearly impossible to replicate in real life.
Having acquired all the details of the real environment it is also possible to maintain all correlated problems (visibility, movements) giving to the simulation in VR a big plus for whenever the crisis situation should materialize in reality. Furthermore in VR you learn to use complex instruments, and this learning happens safely, thus reducing risks correlated with low experience and potential physical accidents during the training.
