Design of a Virtual School Environment for Power Wheelchair Training By Max Edmands, Alana Searleman, and Katelynn Wilton Mentored by Professor Janice Searleman Outline Goal

Previous Work Process Importation Physicalization Storyboarding Intelligent Agents Demonstration Future Work

Purpose and Goals Training is: necessary for funding inconvenient and dangerous Virtual wheelchair is a good alternative Focus group: Children with cerebral palsy Goal: Create a serious game that takes place in a virtual school

Previous Work The Virtual Reality Wheelchair Simulator Previous Work Kyle Burdick's house Chad Homans Wheelchair training facility Cassandra Dearborn's school Created in 3D Studio Max Needs conversion to Virtools

Process Exporting from 3D Studio Max Importing to Virtools Converting from english to metric units Placing objects Replacing textures Duplicating Renaming VSL renaming script

Physics Havok physics engine The physicalization process Attach the Physicalize building block Rediscover a script to physicalize groups of objects Manipulate the

wheelchair in our new environment Storyboarding A school schedule Objectives in each room, for each class Obstacle course in gym Computer game in computer room

Hunt for a book in the library Player has to get to classes on time Intelligent Agents Characters that walk around the world Classmates Teachers Assistants

Janitors Differing levels of challenge based on difficulty level of game Demonstration Future Work Finish importing the virtual school more classrooms

more tasks sound & sound effects lighting Optimization Customization Other Applications e.g. life skills training Thank You To
