Video: SSCRC Project Preliminary Video
This video shows an example of the latest version of our middleware linking the YAWL workflow engine to Open Simulator. We have created a simple example of an accident victim being brought into a Hospital to be processed.
The preliminary interface to the YAWL accident treatment workflow is shown as a worklist on the left of the image. The tasks are presented to the avatar via this interface, in a similar manner as done in web based workflow systems. Objects in the simulator are instrumented with a complex knowledge base, that enables the validation of actions within the world, to make sure that tasks are carried out correctly. This is particularly useful for process training.
NB: this movie is quite long in length - ~7 mins.
This project is supported by the Smart Services CRC. Publications will proceed from this preliminary work, and will be duly reported on in due course.
