In the near future, people will learn about safety through virtual reality experiences and immersive games in their homes. This demo provides you with a glimpse of that future, created at the University of Udine by the Human-Computer Interaction Lab (http://hcilab.uniud.it), a research and development team specialized in safety apps (for more apps see http://hcilab.uniud.it/apps).
In “Emergency Water Landing VR”, you can live an immersive experience of an airliner water landing and evacuation, from the passenger’s perspective. Your goal is to come out unharmed from the aircraft by following safe procedures. But… beware of the mistakes you can make!
A user study has shown that the virtual experience of water landing and evacuation produces better knowledge retention results than traditional aviation safety education materials.
