Halfway through the EPICSAVE research project at the Institute of Visual Computing at the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences (H-BRS): The first prototype of the multi-user virtual reality has been completed. Here, aspiring emergency paramedics can now train rare emergencies. EPICSAVE will be presented at the Learntec Congress for Digital Education in Karlsruhe from 30 January to 1 February 2018.
Digitisation does not stop at education. The EPICSAVE project at the Institute of Visual Computing (IVC) of the H-BRS is an example of this. In the project, a simulation environment based on Virtual Reality (VR) is developed in which prospective emergency paramedics can jointly train the team-based care of rare emergencies. Trainees enter a virtual learning world in which they are confronted with a concrete emergency scenario by means of so-called head-mounted displays.
With the presentation of EPICSAVE’s first prototype at the congress after the Learntec Education Fair, the consortium of EPICSAVE’s project partners expects to make new contacts and receive expert feedback. The Learntec Congress is one of the most renowned German-speaking congresses for digital education. In a lecture, Prof. Dr. Jonas Schild (H-BRS and Hannover University of Applied Sciences) and Dieter Lerner (Fraunhofer IESE) will present the project to an expert audience.
