Session/Category Title:   Physical Simulation



    The Firefighter Training Simulation is a virtual environment being developed at Georgia Tech in collaboration with the Atlanta Fire Department. The VE user is a commanding officer trainee who instructs teams of virtual firefighters to perform different actions to help put out virtual fires. This simulation was developed using the Simple Virtual Environment (SVE) Library, an extensible framework for building VE applications [Kessler 2000].
