A joint effort from NFSTC and the University of Tennessee Law Enforcement Innovation Center (LEIC) has won the Best Collaboration award at the 2012 BizTech Innovation Summit Awards & Expo. The long-distance collaborative team was recognized for their work in developing a cutting-edge virtual reality crime scene training program, Investigator-Virtual Reality (I-VR).
The team was led by NFSTC’s technology services manager, Danny Nichols, and also included Advanced Interactive Systems, a leading gaming software development company in California. The training was developed for law enforcement and features online training accompanied by simulated crime scenes where investigators can try out their newly acquired skills in a virtual environment.
NFSTC is honored to have won and wishes to recognize the University of Tennessee LEIC for their commitment to success on the project. NFSTC would also like to acknowledge its instructional design and technology services teams for once again making the seemingly impossible a reality!
The winners were announced today during a luncheon held at the Tampa Convention Center in the heart of downtown Tampa, Florida. The aim of the BizTech Innovation Summit is to “identify and acknowledge the substantive gains Tampa Bay area businesses are making in the ways they are developing, employing and utilizing technology for their own companies and their clients.”
