Developing a Scenario-Based Video Game Generation Framework for Virtual Reality and Mixed Reality Environments

The 15th Summer Workshop on Multimodal Interfaces - eNTERFACE 2019 - Summary of the Project Description: Video games are widely used software which mainly aim to entertain their users with interaction mechanisms, scenarios and game objects [1]. Serious games [2] are video games which have other purposes rather than only environment —i.e. education, training, rehabilitation and emergency planning [3]. In serious games, developed environments act as testbeds and give the opportunity to test different possibilities, interaction mechanisms and highly complex role assignments. Even though there are lots of serious games and detailed research in the literature [4-8], a generic framework where complex role assignments and interaction mechanisms are easily adapted to game scenarios and player interactions, are still missing. The main aim of this project is to build a pipeline that will convert a summary of scenarios and text-based descriptions to pre-defined game rules. These game rules will define the player’s tasks, roles and provide the basis for the game mechanics. Such a generic rule-based system will enable the game developers to create training programs and/or planning-oriented games in a compact and easy way.


Developing an HLA-based naval maneuvering simulation
Topcu, O; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S. (Wiley, 2005-12-01)
This paper discusses the main issues involved in developing a high level architecture (HLA)-based distributed simulation while presenting an application called Naval Surface Tactical Maneuvering Simulation System (NSTMSS), which is intended to serve as a testbed for HLA and distributed interactive simulation (DIS) research. NSTMSS provides a networked virtual environment (NVE) for naval surface actions in which new formations can be evaluated and tested and present ones can be practiced and analyzed. This p...
Gaming and Virtual Environment
Çağıltay, Kürşat(2009)
The objective of the course is to introduce fundamental gaming concepts and technologies together with giving knowledge of virtual environments, display technologies and interaction techniques. Understanding why people play games, how they fell immersed, how do players interact with computers, which cognitive processes happen, what are the social impacts of games and other technologies are some of the issues that researchers deal with. Another objective is to establish an environment in which the current re...
A simulation tool for mc6811
Sarıkan (Tuncer), Nazlı; Güran, Hasan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
The aim of this thesis study is to develop a simulator for an 8-bit microcontroller and the written document of this thesis study analyses the process of devoloping a software for simulating an 8 bit microcontroller, MC68HC11. In this simulator study a file processing including the parsing of the assembler code and the compilation of the parsed instructions is studied. Also all the instruction execution process containing the cycle and instruction execution and the interrupt routine execution is observed th...
Using Generative Adversarial Nets on Atari Games for Feature Extraction in Deep Reinforcement Learning
Aydın, Ayberk; Sürer, Elif (2020-10-05)
Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) has been successfully applied in several research domains such as robot navigation and automated video game playing. However, these methods require excessive computation and interaction with the environment, so enhancements on sample efficiency are required. The main reason for this requirement is that sparse and delayed rewards do not provide an effective supervision for representation learning of deep neural networks. In this study, Proximal Policy Optimization (PPO) algo...
Developing building information modelling based virtual reality and mixed reality environments for architectural design and improving user interactions with serious games
Ergün, Oğuzcan.; Sürer, Elif; Department of Modeling and Simulation (2019)
Virtual Reality (VR) provides an interactive experience for its users in a fully artificial computer-simulated environment while Mixed Reality (MR) forms environments by mixing the real world and the virtual world elements together. In the first part of this thesis, an architectural visualization and design tool, which is based on Building Information Modeling (BIM), is developed for VR, MR and personal computer (PC) environments. BIM provides detailed information and tools to professionals so that they can...
