Abstract

Inadequate verification of traffic accidents may result in under- or over- response to the accidents. Under-response may cause delay in rescuing the victim, while over-response could promote additional traffic congestion. To overcome this problem, a training tool for use by dispatchers-intelligent TRraffic Evaluator for Prompt Incident Diagnosis in a Virtual Reality environment (INTREPID-VR)-was developed. INTREPID-VR allows novice dispatchers to immerse themselves in a simulation process, that makes them feel as if they were present on the accident site. Because it offers this 'first- hand' experience, INTREPID-VR will be useful for trainees in two ways: it offers greater precision to dispatchers in verifying, assessing, and responding to traffic accidents; it also performs
