In this Challenge, contestants used their ingenuity, software coding, and VR expertise to create a heads-up display (HUD) for navigation with unimpeded visual aids. The results of this challenge will support America’s First Responders and help PSCR advance research for User Interface (UI) technology. UI is “the means by which a user and a technology system interact; including how users input, access, and navigate data and communications through the technology.” Some examples of UIs are haptic feedback mechanisms (e.g., sound, vibration), vocal commands, and visual indicators (e.g. heads-up displays). Historically, UI design has been broad and rarely targeted for Public Safety, however, it’s critical that first responders complete their tasks efficiently and effectively with minimum impediment.
