PSIAP User Interface

The NIST Public Safety Innovation Accelerator Program – User Interface (PSIAP-UI FY18) NOFOawardees will accelerate research, development, production, and testing of user interface technologies and capabilities through the use of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). The purpose of this NOFO is to develop technology that will enable researchers to better assess public safety user interfaces using VR and AR. Award recipients will achieve this by creating new technology or applying current technology to the specific public-safety use cases. Award recipients will also conduct research to support testing user interfaces within an AR/VR environment and ensure results are transferable to real-world implementations. PSCR funded $6.4M in new awards for this research and development.
