Industry Talk by THALES: Immersive Simulations

Last Friday morning we had the pleasure of hearing from Philip Swadling, Chris Joslin and Andrew Sheldon-Collins from Thales where they explained what Thales is all about, some exciting work that has been done in the past and some novel advanced applications of familiar game technologies.

This talk helped further broaden the perspectives of the students, challenging ideas of what games are and how they can be used to achieve serious training outcomes in highly immersive simulations.

As our students are in the midst of their own development of a Serious Game, this talk helped students further understand the process of translating learning outcomes into an autonomous digital context – with specific emphasis on the importance of bespoke hardware in applicable scenarios.

Overall very exciting and informative, would love to have you back for another talk!
