The Crisis Simulation System

Project logo

The CRIMSON project aims to research, develop and validate an innovative system using the Virtual Reality technologies for the inter-organisational preparation, rehearsal and management of security missions in response to urban crisis. The proposed system will enable the involvement of multiple participants from various operational agencies such as fire brigades, policemen, medical teams, military troops, and even the general public. It will allow the 3D simulation and evaluation of complex crisis and contingency scenarios that would be difficult to simulate and validate in real conditions. This system will offer a unique tool for creating, communicating and sharing complex knowledge between users with very different educational or cultural background. It will dramatically enhance the planning and management of crisis, the preparation of crisis management tasks, and, at the same time, it will provide a captivating tool for the collaborative training of the security actors and the information of citizens. CRS4 contribution to this project focuses on time-critical rendering of large urban scenery.
