ORLANDO — With wildfires a recurring threat across the state, University of Central Florida researchers are developing a virtual-reality program to educate the public about the risk to their properties and communities.
The team aims to create interactive simulations that predict the path and speed of wildfires in areas of the state, beginning with Volusia County.
