Prototyping 3D User Interfaces for First Responders

Prototyping 3D UI for First Responders_On-Demand Session
Due to rapid advances in technology, first responders will eventually have access to building information, sensor data, and fire protection system data in real-time. However, the presentation of this critical information has not been fully evaluated from the human performance perspective. This session will address some of the benefits and challenges of using virtual reality (VR) for prototyping 3D user interfaces. The theoretical background needed to effectively identify public safety end-user needs will be introduced, along with highlights from some of the previous research efforts conducted by both PSCR and the University of Central Florida (UCF). The session will conclude with a brief discussion of current and future research directions within the PSCR UI/UX portfolio.
