NIST Virtual Public Safety Test Environment Challenge

The Virtual Public Safety Test Environment Challenge, sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Public Safety Innovation Accelerator, is crowd sourcing ideas and designs for measurement environments that use immersive virtual reality tools in conjunction with physical spaces to simulate first responder scenarios for accurate and repeatable testing of new first responder interfaces and technologies.

With NIST offering up $50,000 in prizes, we are confident there will be great ideas submitted and look forward to reading about them for the crowd voting May 8th through May 19th. We will be monitoring the contest as it progresses and will provide updates when available.
