Investigating Human Behavior in Disasters using Virtual Reality
Understanding human behavior in disasters is fundamental to reduce the impact of natural and human threats on communities. In this presentation, Dr. Loveglio is going to provide an overview of his research outputs published in the last 5 years. This research journey shows the effectiveness of combining novel technologies, such as Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, and 3D scanning. In the seminar, Dr. Lovreglio is going to show how those technologies and modeling solution have been applied to investigate Human Behaviour is several disasters, such as building fires and earthquakes, as well as how those can be used to train people overcoming the limitation of classic evacuation drills.
