Our goal is to improve interprofessional training and communication among healthcare professionals by creating a multi user experience via projection mapping. This poses an unique advantage over VR/AR because it allows for an in person collaborative environment. We are filming videos of procedural demonstrations using a 360 camera, and allowing interaction through the integration of the Vive Motion Trackers with a Leap Motion rig.
Projection Mapping involves the use of projectors in order to create a simulated environment. This can take many forms, such as projections on a flat surface, object, or in a dome to create a complete environment. Projection Mapping differs from Virtual Reality in that it allows for multiple users to have the same experience in a collaborative situation with real life interaction.
Virtual Reality creates an immersive environment by having the user wear a VR headset. Everything in the user’s field of vision is simulated to give the user an immersive experience. This differs from Projection Mapping in that the experience is limited to one user. The only possible collaboration would involve multiplayer interactivity involving another user with a headset on.
