Abstract

When a large-scale disaster occurs, it is necessary for citizens to take the lead and do rescue operations. People train and prepare for disasters in advance, but training sessions cannot be held easily, and the learning pace of each individual is not considered. In this study, we propose a first aid training system for citizens using a human-shaped input device, QUMARION. This system provides first aid skills training through humancomputer interaction. By using a human-shaped input device instead of human bodies, people can carry out the training of posture management individually and learn at their own pace. In addition, since our system provides advice and feedback depending on the knowledge level of the user, not only can they perform the learning, but they can also confirm whether they acquire knowledge and skills correctly. We conducted an experiment to see whether the trainee can learn accurately by using our system. The results showed that our system enables easy and effective learning about first aid.
