Using mixed-reality glasses to inform and warn First Responders

Mixed reality deals with the combination of real-world and
computer-generated data, usually with the help of translucent glasses in
order to overlay images over a real world (see Fig. 1) .
Augmented Reality technologies are difficult to implement since a
coordination between the overlaid pictures and the real world has to be
provided.

Possible applications are:
1) One can show existing but invisible dangers (e.g.
radioactivity, heat) by Augmented Reality with data derived from sensors and
tools (e.g. showing the atomic or heat emanation), overlaid on the real images (Fig. 2).


2) Use in :
2.1 Simulating danger situations: One can simulate in a field the dangerous situations and
train and watch the person's
behaviour without real danger for them. Different sceenarios can easily be simulated in  a real environment but with
simlated dangers.

22. Simulating workin in a group by augmenting the reality with further virtual persons to simulate the interaction
in and with a group

A virtual image can be superimposed on a distant object or area.
It shows shows an ocular which is able to identify contaminations in a
landscape including quantitative information for the user.
