Abstract:

Novel advanced game techniques provide us with new possibilities to mimic a complicated training process, with the benefit of safety enhancement. In this paper, we design and implement a 3D game which imitates the lifeboat launching process. Lifeboat launching is such a complex but vital process which can on one side saving people's life on sea and on the other side associating many potential hazards. It involves both the tractor manoeuvres and boat operations. The primary objective of the game is to allow novices to better understand the sequence of the operations in launching process and manager the potential hazards happening during the launching. There is also great educational significance with the promotion of the game to the general public for enhanced awareness of safety issues. The key modules of the game are designed based on physical simulation which gives the players enhanced plausible cognition and enjoyable interaction.
