Shooting-Training Solution with Of-the-shelf Products in Virtual Reality
The SHOTPROS project aims to investigate the influence of psychological and contextual human factors (HFs) on the shooting behaviour of police officers and to utilize this knowledge for minimizing shooting occurrences and, associated therewith, minimize casualties. To do so, SHOTPROS will develop a VR (virtual reality) research prototype to experimentally assess the degree to which these factors influence shooting behaviour. Subsequently we will develop a HF-rooted training curriculum and an according VR training environment prototype to provide a one-stop solution for safe firearm training of European police forces.
