Description

Ship design review (SDR) involves extensive collaborative and participatory processes requiring all SDR actors (designers, stakeholders, end-users) to manage a large complex decision space and to cope with heavy cognitive demands. Here, we present a novel framework for the development of a system whose purpose is to optimize the balance between SDR complexity and users’ cognitive effort. The system will exploit the power of interactive multi-user immersive 3D environments based on efficient immersive Virtual Reality Mock-Ups (VRMU) from CADs. The remote multi-user cooperative interaction will be supported by tools like Oculus Rift and Oculus Touch/Leap Motion, as well as by avatars to overcome geographic distance and increase social proximity. This will likely facilitate joined decision processes and, through enaction, the visualization of environmental features (error/feature detection, information search), thus promoting the project development towards success.
