Adaptive training games for crisis management
The Data2Game project investigates how, and to what extent, the efficacy of computerised training games can be enhanced by tailoring the training scenarios to the individual player. The research is performed in close collaboration with serious-game developers at Thales/T-Xchange and with Veiligheidsregio Twente for the purpose of enhancing the training efficacy of members of crisis management teams.
The project is structured such that there is a close collaboration between the involved disciplines, and research outcomes will be implemented and validated directly in the actual target domain: the training of crisis management team members. The project will yield a new prototype of the crisis response training game for Veiligheidsregio Twente at least once every year. Iterative user evaluation and empirical studies will be performed at the Virtual Reality Lab (University of Twente), DAF Technology Lab (Tilburg University), and at TRONED (Twente Safety Campus).
We are actively looking for research participants, for testing our new prototypes and games. Read more
