XVRSIM: A Virtual Reality Training Software for Public Safety and Security


Incident response training is essential for well-qualified personnel. Therefore, XVR Simulation developed a virtual reality training platform called XVR for education, training and assessment of incident commanders of operational level up to strategic level. The objective is to create flexible, reliable & user-friendly simulation tools where learning is key and the instructor is in control. You can use the different modules separately but they can also be linked together and run simultaneously. The XVR platform is used in both single- and multi-agency settings.
