Abstract
During the Phase I period of this contract we will research and develop a Phase II development plan for creating an augmented reality serious game for medic training. Our primary technical research will focus on: Dynamic augmented reality registration of deformable surface. 3D Stereoscopic video and MRI/ultrasound augmented reality overlays. Real-time occlusion tracking, particularly of the hands. Medical gesture recognition for task completion. User-generated, and open-source game content interfaces. Novel scoring systems that account for the user's behavior and react naturally. This scoring system requires a detailed understanding of what tasks should be completed at anytime, as well as team task behaviors. Maintaining realistic haptic feedback for the simulation participants so as the augmented/virtual components of the simulation merge seamlessly with the real world. Working with the sponsor and our affiliates in the serious games, medical, and DoD domains we will: Locate candidate groups for final testing and develop simulation validation techniques. Research and attend and potentially publish at relevant industry conferences. Discover potential customers for commercialization including customers in the private and DoD domains
