AR to improve medical facilities in disaster zones

The chance to see and feel a part of a deployable hospital is now possible as the University of South Australia and Saab have partnered for a virtual experience like no other, according to a recent report.

A first in South Australia, visitors to MOD’s will get a rare insight into how augmented reality (AR) is helping in the design and set-up of sophisticated deployable medical technologies in disaster zones through its exhibition called Waging Peace.

Waging Peace opens on 27 November 2018 and includes an array of exhibits designed to challenge traditional ideas of peace-building.

The exhibition asks whether it is possible to proactively and aggressively pursue peace.

The Saab Augmented Relief exhibit will allow visitors wearing HoloLens devices to walk through a virtual field hospital and experience it as how a medical staff would in real scenarios where emergency medical support is needed.

The collaboration with the company will give people first-hand experience of how AR technologies are being used by local industry to innovate the design process using cutting edge technology.

The innovations pioneered by the defence sector are much broader than people imagine and often underpin civilian applications that enhance the capacity to deliver health care, emergency assistance and other much needed human services.

The collaboration builds on a joint agreement, which was signed by the University and the company in 2017.

The agreement was done to establish the Saab Australia-UniSA Defence Technologies Institute.

This was designed to develop a key education and research pipeline for highly skilled systems engineers in South Australia.

Moreover, the partnership also supports the ongoing development and refinement of AR technologies as well as autonomous systems, cybersecurity and complex systems engineering through engagement with the researchers of the University.

The Augmented Relief exhibit will give people a better idea of the incredible adaptability of augmented reality technologies.

Using this technology, people will be able to see what works and in what circumstances, allowing them to be able to design more efficient medical facilities for the field.

The designs can then be tested and work can then be refined in order for deployable hospitals and the medical technologies they contain be fit for all circumstances.

Being a part of the Waging Peace exhibition is a delight since it poses important questions about the social, environmental and human factors that influence peace.

In addition, it provides an understanding on how technologies can actively support peaceful societies, which is a vital element of that story.

MOD is Australia’s future-focused museum, provoking new ideas at the intersection of science, art and innovation.
