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
