Augmented Reality Testing of Equipment and Multiple Immersive Simulations (ARTEMIS) allows first responders to test the effectiveness of new equipment, technology, capabilities, and techniques in virtual and mixed reality. Researchers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) are working closely with the Cobb County and Georgia Tech Police Departments to develop a traffic stop scenario (and eventually, other useful scenarios) in virtual reality and to understand how the experience could be enhanced through the use of near-future technology. - July 2019
GTRI will create a testing platform to enable objective comparisons on the efficacy of new methods and devices in scenarios important to first responders. Designed from the ground up with a data-driven perspective, ARTEMIS will be a comprehensive system capable of creating, modifying, and testing new scenarios, technologies, and capabilities.
BENEFITS AND IMPACTS
The final product will not be just another isolated technology, but an analysis suite capable of integrating with any tool or technology whose data output is correctly formatted. NIST can expect a fully configurable user experience, capabilities for testing simulated or real tools in Virtual Reality, integration with low-tech test suites, and a framework for future expansion.
