EON Reality Norway has developed the virtual municipality Lyngvik where different emergency actors can train collaboration in handling different sorts of crisis. Lyngvik is integrated with an intelligent training simulator giving the actors the possibility to train on a number of predefined scenarios. The simulator will record and replay all activities and communication – a prerequisite to properly evaluate performance and improve results.
Students are able to explore Lyngvik and familiarize themselves with town and the people within it. They are then able to do a risk assessment to understand the unique risks and challenges the community faces. The scenario, controlled by a “Game Master” allows for predefined or unique situations to be created for evaluation.
