THE AVRT SYSTEM:
Key benefits that can be gained by adopting the AVRT platform:
The AVRT platform is built on reliable, self-contained consumer technology to avoid the need for costly custom-built VR hardware. Wireless hardware allows for natural movements and actions on a completely free-roam tracking area. Soldiers can train in issued body armour and personal load-carrying equipment, greatly reducing the potential for training gaps.
This approach results in virtually zero adaption time for trainees, leaving them to focus on the learning outcomes.
The AVRT free-roam tracking system uses a fully configurable training area and can be set up in any reasonably-sized open space. The tracking area can be scaled to any size to suit the training requirement with no impact on tracking effectiveness, allowing large teams to train together. The AVRT system is fully portable, giving greater flexibility to training programmes – any venue can be a training venue.
Added to the VR hardware is industry-leading technology in the form of custom weapons and active real-world props based on firearms and equipment that are in use around the world. Virtually any weapon can be built into the platform and used in multiple, so soldiers engage whilst fully equipped.
These weapons include Rifles, Carbines and Pistols as well as less-lethal devices. Weapon use is intuitive, gives haptic feedback to the user and can be holstered into existing tactical equipment to give a more natural training experience.
High-risk scenarios can be simulated including use of height to enhance training outcomes. Live or training ammunition is not needed, lowering the risk potential for exercises.
The AVRT instructor console allows configuration and adaptation of fully interactive scenarios according to how Soldiers are performing. This includes defining the environment, enemies and weapons during training setup and changing character behaviour, aggression, actions and even lighting conditions while the scenario is running live. The same scenario can have different outcomes for users that have trained with it previously or a fully repeatable situation can be configured for formative and summative assessment purposes. The AVRT system is significantly different from passive 3D video VR training.
Networking allows soldiers to train together in the same virtual and physical space.
The system uses existing trainer skillsets to deliver established curricula and frameworks. Current learning outcomes can be delivered out-of-the-box with no costly changes to content or scenarios required.
Scenarios can be viewed from the Soldier’s perspective so that the trainer and the rest of the training group can see exactly what was seen at the time the action was taken. The whole training session can be recorded for review later if the organisation requires this. Replays can be reviewed from any perspective within the scenario using a free-roaming camera. Advanced metrics display shot placement, distances, reaction times and Soldier biometric data throughout the training scenario and replay.
Technology products such as Teslasuit and SenseGlove are able to integrate with the AVRT platform to achieve the best outcomes for users and trainers alike.
The AVRT system is also able to work with advanced motion systems from Delta Kinetic to add large scale moving platforms, to add further realism to scenarios. These can include simulated Land Vehicles, Maritime Scenarios, Driving Simulation and more.
The AVRT team are always seeking new use-cases for this technology.
