Dynamic Scenario Adaptation Balancing Control, Coherence and Emergence

Abstract

As the industrial world grows more complex, virtual environments have proven to be interesting tools to train workers to procedures and work situations. To ensure learning and motivation from the trainees, a pedagogical control of these environments is needed. However, existing systems either do not provide control over running simulations, limit user agency, need the authors to specify a priori all possible scenarios, or allow incoherent behaviours from the simulated technical system or the virtual characters. We propose in this paper a model for a dynamic and indirect control of the events of a virtual environment. Our model aims to ensure the control, coherence, and emergence of situations, in virtual environments designed for training in highly complex work situations.
