Kick-off of Marine Pollution Control Simulator​ (MPCS)

Kick-off for Marine Pollution Control Simulator​ (MPCS) Project

Qualiseg is proud to announce the start of MPCS Project, which aims at developing a cloud-based tool easily reachable through different platforms (mobile, tablet, or laptop), that allows the providing of training, exercising, assessment, and performance evaluation of the marine pollution control, at different levels, namely:

MPCS is an innovative tool considering the following aspects:

Supported in Mathematical Models, Discrete-Events Simulation (DES) and Game-based Learning (GBL), MPCS adopts the game approach as a learning experience to allow the player to understand the subject matter within a real-world context.
This approach improves the interface, increases agents involvement, therefore constitutes a better tool for competence acquisition. Particularly, the Massive Multiplayer Gaming (MMG) technique allows the simultaneous involvement of several players located in different locations, making possible to assess the performance of the team that is facing a specific scenario (ex. oil spill) without employing physical means, needed on a real environment exercise.

Qualiseg is the project promotor in partnership with University of Coimbra (Portugal), Professional Institute for Transport and Logistics of Funchal (Portugal), Directorate-General Maritime Authority (Portugal), and Ecosistemas Virtuales y Modulares S.L (Spain).

MPCS Project is funded through the Union Civil Protection Mechanism (UCPM) of the EU. #environment #experience #project #training #
