Free Roam Virtual Reality in Defence training
As the development of Virtual Reality technologies advances and becomes more accessible, defense organisations worldwide are beginning to report the efficacy of VR training through improved learning outcomes (208, Whitney et al.). Some key benefits of simulating live scenarios in VR include:
- Enhanced training and safer outcomes through its ability to rapidly generate many complex and dangerous scenarios within a safe physical environment.
- Cost and time savings are also associated organisational benefits resulting from reduced travel and rapid scalability compared to live scenario set-up.
