Subsidy in “Defence and security” programme
SIM Factor Sp. z o.o., together with the consortium member, Sieć Badawcza Łukasiewicz – Instytut Technologii Elektronowej, received partial financing to implement the project entitled “Innovative Educational Training Simulator with Interactive Social Prevention Modules” (DOB-BIO10/12/05/2019) carried out for the purpose of defence and security of the country selected in CONTEST NO. 10/2019 and co-financed by the National Centre for Research and Development.
The project will cover building a mobile educational training simulator which will be used by the National Fire Brigade officers for preventive activities. The simulator will facilitate execution of educational and preventive activities directed at the society. Implementation of project results by supplying a tool for the execution of social prevention activities will also serve to reduce the number of casualties and victims and the extent of property damage in situations posing a threat to people.
The training simulator will be composed of:
- an interactive simulator of risks (modelling risks in real-life conditions using expanded and virtual reality). A virtual building will be rendered where the trainee wearing VR goggles will be able to experience different forms of risk (e.g. fire, smoke, electrical failures);
- educational platform containing “good practices bank”, resource books, research results, and other materials. The platform will be a valuable source of knowledge and information concerning the development of safety culture, which constitutes an element of social prevention.
