Augmented Reality Testing of Equipment and Multiple Immersive Simulations (ARTEMIS)

Logo of Georgia Tech Applied Research Corporation

Georgia Tech Research Institute


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



ARTEMIS allows first responders to test the usability and effectiveness of new technologies and procedures in virtual reality. Researchers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute are working closely with local 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. This session covers the usability metrics and physiological data that will be used to evaluate new technologies and procedures.

Project Overview

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.

Approaches

  • Task 1: Create a realistic Virtual Reality (VR) environment 
  • Task 2: Create the scenario management system 
  • Task 3: Select and model Technology Innovations 
  • Task 4: Select and integrate sensor systems 
  • Task 5: Custom Scenario creation 
  • Task 6: Determine summary output and visualizations 
  • Task 7: VR interactive after-action reporting tool

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.
