Emergency situations within complex structures have procedures and exit routes that may be complex and confusing in panic prone conditions. A smart escape hood could reduce confusion and provide safety instructions to save lives and equipment, possibly avoiding further damage.
What it does
Uses 3D modeling of a structure/risk and identifies every exit sign with a QRcode from which to generate situational awareness and generates guidance for best exit path and safety/control checklists for each location.
How I built it
Unity based Android Smartphone App for Google cardboard
Challenges I ran into
Cardboard VR viewer obstructs vision, smartphone has to be pre-configured
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Got project funded to continue development
What I learned
That I needed stand-alone AR headset that is ready to go
What's next for Smart Escape Hood
Use AR headset like MagicLeapOne
