Firefighter (fire marshal) VR trainer prototype

Project Details


This project was a collaboration between the Royal Navy, and the University of Portsmouth. The primary aim was to provide a scalable VR simulator for training personnel in a fire marshal role with regard to extinguishing small fires with accessible firefighting tools. Real-world training of this type is limited by cost and logistics, as well as health and safety. The simulator enables trainees to experience a wide range of scenarios, some of which would be impossible to experience in real-world training scenarios, at a fraction of the cost. The simulator incorporates a procedural fire triangle, thermal conductivity, radiation and convection models along with a method to define objects parameters with regard to interaction with this system.
