Paper Abstract

Recent advances in commercial-level virtual-reality (VR) systems have reduced the barriers to entry into the use of virtual-reality products in both financial and technical terms. With lower costs, less obtrusive hardware, and greater adoption amongst the wider technology fields, VR systems are attracting new interest in industries that have previously not leveraged VR for enhanced data interaction. Three-dimensional data-sets have traditionally been reviewed in two-dimensions by slicing the three-dimensional data, or animating a fly-through on a flat screen. While this mode of review does offer one method for data interaction, the extension into a third-dimension via VR offers new data immersion at a previously unseen scale. L3 Unmanned Maritime Systems is exploring new data interaction tools that leverage VR to immerse operators and users in three-dimensional water quality, optical reconstructions, bathymetry scenes to make post-mission analysis more efficient and effective. This paper will discuss the use of virtual-reality for AUV post-mission analysis along with in-software metrics for quantifying the benefits of VR use. We will discuss early L3 Unmanned Maritime Systems VR training efforts and current efforts building more involved analysis tools.
