Mixed Reality

 Blending the best of the real with the best of the virtual


The University of Birmingham’s Human Interface Technologies (HIT) Team is designing and delivering innovative transformations for the future of emergency response training. The HIT Team’s unique Medical Emergency Response Teams (MERTs) training simulator exploits the latest generation of Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR) technologies and techniques to create realistic operational environments, reconfigurable to represent a range of land, air and sea rescue vehicles.

The methodology and technology behind the HIT team’s MERT training simulator has the potential to be rolled out across a broad range of defence and public emergency response teams. The realism, adaptability and affordability ensures that the MERT project will have a huge impact on the training of emergency responders and will help to save human lives.
