Research Projects: Media Rich Streaming for Remote Simulation and Training
This project explores streaming-based, augmented reality techniques for the training of control console operators, enabling remote visualization and interaction with a simulation at HD resolution over a 1.5 Mbps T-1 data line. This allows users to train while on active deployment by using mock-up consoles, which can receive and display the video stream, while sending user input events back to the simulation computer. The mock-up console costs significantly less than an actual simulation console and can be deployed to virtually anywhere in the world with a satisfactory internet connection. Furthermore, we demonstrate the option of using virtual and augmented reality mixed with the streamed simulation content. This allows for training when console workspaces are either unavailable or can not be taken offline from their active use.
