Virtual Emergency Situation Training Reality
In today’s world we face a very real threat of terror. This machine will go to schools and businesses to teach the user survival points
VESTR ( virtual emergency situation training reality) has been 4 months in planning. Having seen first hand the terror situations within the UK along with the devastation that it cause at the time, and in the aftermath for persons and families, nothing could have prepared anyone for the situations we have seen within the UK in 2017.
Training people for situations like this in mass using actors and locations is labour and financially intensive, as well as the loss of work time having to take people out of the office. But with VESTR this can now come to you.
VESTR will be able to put the user into 1 of 3 live terrorist/active shooter incidents. For those who have used VR systems before will know just how real it feels when you load into the virtual reality worlds. The scenarios will put the user through an initial test to see how they can cope and what they do.
(Initial launch will be single user training however the plan is to progress on to multi user systems that will enable you and others to work together)
After the initial scenario all users will go in to a short classroom lesson in order to understand certain key principles of what to do in an active shooter or terrorist incident. Following this they will be deployed in to VESTR once again for one of the further 2 remaining scenarios. To then load in and use the lessons learnt and priciples from the classroom and to further understand just how effective and life saving actions can be.
(We are also a registered first aid centre, this can also be built in to a package for you and your staff/pupils as part of your VESTR visit)
As to be clear about expenditures I have listed items below
VR PC Unit - £3500
Vive business unit - £900
VR treadmill - £5000 inc.shipping
VR scenario software £20,000 per scenario.
All other costs of marketing and initial demos will be covered by personal funds.
Risks and challenges
VESTR units will use bespoke built scenarios through computer programming. The scenarios from planning to completion will take 4 months approximately. We will be integrating voice and hand recognition which means actions and noises will be picked up during the scenario. This is new technology so will need to be continually advanced. The program will however be thoroughly tested before rolling out to public.
You will have some people who will be shocked by the scenarios. Waivers will be used before each person undertakes the VESTR training.
As this product will be aimed at schools the scenario for children will be simpler and less graphic, this is a training aid and do not want to scar them with scenes but give them an understanding.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
