USING WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY TO DEVELOP A VIRTUAL REALITY COMMAND AND CONTROL CENTRE

Damian Green, Neville Stanton, Guy Walker, Paul Salmon

Abstract

This paper investigates the applicability of wireless communication systems for use in a command and control environment. Human positional data is transmitted over a wireless network. This data is then used to update a highly accurately modelled real-time 3D environment of the surroundings, with avatars positioned at the transmitted points. The data is displayed on a stereoscopic 3D screen enabling novel automatic tracking of human movement and allowing for more rapid and informed tactical decision making. This system has applicability in a variety of situations including Command and Control in essential services – fire, rescue and military.
