Final Project Idea - AR HUD for emergency service personnel
For my final project I am going to tie into my dissertation about designing the most efficient and situational aware GUI for a HUD (heads up display) augmented reality visor/goggle to be used by emergency service personnel (Fire, Ambulance, Police and possibly coastguard).
Above is a sketch to show the basic idea of what I want to achieve. Whether I will be making a simulation of the idea or the real thing will be something I need to assess (as physically making the system will probably not be feasible for a student…).
I want to use the design aspects I learn through my dissertation to become a reality to create the best HUD to aid situational awareness in a variety of life saving scenarios where time, oxygen, light, heat, medical condition, violent threats and disorder need to be assessed quickly and then presented to the user in the quickest and none distracting way possible (not obscuring view of the situation).
