Who says games are not good for you? We have seen a tremendous increase in the use of gaming, serious gaming, virtual reality and mixed reality for real-world training environments. First responders and the military have gone all in on using these types of technologies for enhancing training scenarios and in many cases get better and more cost-effective training from the use of the technologies.

A platform named AUGGMED is working on using mixed reality for training first responders.

According to AUGGMED (Automated Serious Game Scenario Generator for Mixed Reality Training) platform,

The aim of AUGGMED is to develop a serious game platform to enable single- and team-based training of end-users with different level of expertise from different organisations responding to terrorist and organised crime threats.

The platform will automatically generate non-linear scenarios tailored to suit the needs of individual trainees with learning outcomes that will improve the acquisition of emotional management, analytical thinking, problem-solving and decision-making skills. The game scenarios will include advanced simulations of operational environments, agents, telecommunications and threats, and will be delivered through virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR) environments with multimodal interfaces.
