How can augmented reality prevent fires?

Fire & Explosion

Augmented reality is a cutting-edge technology that blends virtual images with our real world, creating an immersive experience. As a tool of the future, it will help better manage emergency situations, such as fires.

Augmented reality is a technology that combines virtual images with the real world around us to create an immersive experience. It is a tool of the future that will allow us to better react to emergency situations.

For example, it could allow tomorrow, to visualize scenes and emergency problems through a set of information and virtual images, provided by an imaging system and sensors.

Today, augmented reality fulfills a training/prevention role via training to react to different emergency situations: this allows for a better understanding of the risks and promotes the “right” reactions to them.

A new generation of augmented reality technologies will provide firefighters with innovative and powerful tools to fight effectively against fire risks.

In this context, INQUEST teams are currently developing digital modeling, simulations, and augmented reality solutions that allow for precise analysis of fire kinetics and facilitate the restitution of the fire.
