Immersive virtual reality (VR) training scenarios

Visitors will be transported to a realistic environment using VR. Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service has partnered up with RiVR to create groundbreaking photo-realistic virtual reality training scenarios to allow emergency responders to train more frequently in dangerous environments.

Leicestershire Fire & Rescue Service will be presenting their VR training sessions in the Product Innovation Theatre giving visitors the opportunity to speak directly with trainers and specialists. For the first time ever Leicestershire Fire & Rescue Service will be demonstrating their immersive virtual reality training scenarios onsite at ISE 2019 giving visitors the opportunity to test the products firsthand and participate in the live demonstrations, scenes include:

  • The fire investigation scene. Used for Fire Fighter training and Police forensics training, in this scene each user will be challenged to see if they can piece together the information to make the connection of their environment - e.g. identification of bomb-making equipment.
  • Police scenes of crime. Used by Forensic Investigators, first-on-the scene officers and attending detectives. Be the first person on the scene in a realistic crime scene and be challenged to gather the evidence needed whilst ensuring you protect and preserve the original crime scene.
