Times Union Reported on Virtual Reality Research in RRMDG

Rensselaer Radiation Measurement & Dosimetry Group (RRMDG), which is lead by Prof. X. George Xu, have been working on the virtual reality and motion capture systems for use with radiation dose analysis.

The virtual reality system could combine layout of nuclear power plant and sources of radiation with avatars linked to actual human subjects, who would move through the virtual plant and determine which actions could be taken safely and which could not.
