M.E.A.T.S.

Overview

Situation

Calamityville was looking to expand their Live Virtual Constructive (LVC) environment, and decided an RPG would be a good integration.

Task

Calamityville challenged the GRILL to create a mixed reality RPG simulation that integrates with other simulations at Calamityville using a network standard called Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS)

Action

Using Unreal Engine 4, HTC Vive, Vive trackers, Raspberry Pi, and DIS, the students created a mixed reality RPG simulation that allows you to interact with other objects in the world.

Future

The students stated that if they had more time, they would have liked to make the simulation work on mobile devices, and to improve the virtual environment further.
