SEOUL, Oct. 20 (Korea Bizwire) — Police announced plans to introduce new technology from the Fourth Industrial Revolution, including metaverse platforms, to renovate its education and training curriculum.
The National Police Agency (NPA) will invest 24 billion won (US$20.4 million) over the next five years to build an extended reality (XR)-based simulation training program.
Police officers will receive training under various scenarios wearing sensor-equipped devices that use projection mapping technology to virtually create a crime scene with a real-like rendering of the floors and walls.
This year, the NPA is developing a virtual scenario for a traffic accident. Another 11 scenarios will be developed over the next two or three years. .
The training facility, to be set up at the Central Police Academy and the Police Human Resources Development Institute, will feature real-like, biosignal interfaces with smart voice interaction systems.
The NPS also plans to introduce contactless education platforms that use artificial intelligence (AI) tutors and metaverse technology to adjust to the post-pandemic era.
