17 december 2009 – Er is veel kraamvisite, veelal gewapend met camera’s, aanwezig bij de geboorte van Medsim op donderdag 10 december. Medsim is niet zomaar een baby; het is het eerste bevallingssimulatiecentrum ter wereld. De trainingsruimtes zijn gevestigd op twee verdiepingen in Kennispoort en minister Maria van der Hoeven kwam het lintje, in de vorm van een buikwand, doorknippen. De TU/e is niet alleen verhuurder van de locatie, ze levert ook de nodige techniek. [Read more:  HTML, PDF]

A Distributed Multi-agent Architecture in Simulation Based Medical Training

Abstract. This paper addresses the issues of distributed interactions in a simulation based medial training environment, where a team of doctors, nurses and assistants are trained for handling difficult delivery situations using simulations. A scripting language is proposed, using a metaphor of play, with which the timing and mapping issues in distributed presentations are covered. A generic architecture for the systems is also presented, which covers the timing and mapping issues of conducting such a script in a medical training environment. The difference between playing a medical training scenario and playing a multimedia entertainment scenario is discussed, based on which the future research and development are proposed.
