Virtual Reality 3D First Aid Training Scene Capture Solution

Indicative Funding
To provide a much more immersive experience for first aid training, the funding body - Rescue Swag is seeking a solution to replace the conventional 2D first aid scene capture solution. This project is aiming at design a 3D stereoscopic shooting solution using the high definition camera, including both system design, hardware and software solutions. At the end of this project, a system will be experience, and improve the training outcomes.
