Virtual And Augmented Reality Application For Human Behavior In Disasters

Ruggiero Lovreglio - Massey University

Abstract

Natural and human-made disasters, such as earthquakes, fires, terrorism attacks, constantly threatenhumans and their built environments resulting in loss of human lives and damage of properties. To reduce the impact of these disasters , it is fundamental to design buildings to allow people to respond safely and to train people on the best response to have depending on the nature of the disasters.Today several new technologies have been proposed to achieve these goals. Augmented and Virtual Reality represent some of the most popular technologies that have been adopted to achieve these goals. This work provides a review of existing applications and identifies common trends and research gaps. This review has identified 64 papers using Augmented and Virtual Realities to enhance safety design of built environments, to investigate human behaviour and to train people.
