Development of Maritime VR Training Applications and Their Use in Simulation Networks: Fast Rescue Boat Training in EMSN Connect
1 Fraunhofer Center for Maritime Logistics and Services (CML), Hamburg, Germany
ABSTRACT: The theoretical and practical acquisition of skills to carry out the necessary steps consciously and safely in an emergency is essential for training specialized personnel. Due to the lack of trained experts on site, such as firefighters or emergency doctors, learning the skills is a high priority in the maritime sector. Not least through adjustments in the certification of qualifications, through the refreshing of knowledge in specified time frames, the topic has been given greater importance. This paper will further describe the efforts of the FIP-S2@Novia cooperation to develop a virtual reality-based learning application for the maritime sector, in particular an application for learning how to use a Fast Rescue Boat in a person overboard operation. Furthermore, the paper describes the technical approach, the implementation of the VR application in Unity as well as the connection of the application to the European maritime simulation network (EMSN Connect), and its use in a connected simulation exercise.
