Abstract
The future of visual simulation requires more portability, higher fidelity, lower cost, the ability to interact with local objects, and the ability to react to a simulated visual system or actual visuals from another location. The purpose of this research is for Systems Technology, Inc. (STI) to develop a Fused Reality (FR) Visual System that allows the user to interact with local objects along with viewing and reacting to a simulated visual environment. FR employs three proven technologies – live video capture, real-time video editing (blue screen imaging), and virtual environment simulation STI will demonstrate the FR system on various training systems for training tasks. Advantages of FR include: 1) Seamlessly merging the isolated strengths of virtual reality (good simulation fidelity of the far-space environment) and projection screens (one-to-one correspondence between viewed manual tasks and the actual manual task); 2) Minimization of actual cabin hardware; 3) Compact, low-cost, omni-directional visual system; 4) Embedded Simulation - rapid conversion of actual aircraft/airframes into task simulators; 5) Maximum Training-to-Space ratio; and 6) Flexibility to suit particular/partial training requirements and space constraints.
