CGA Simulation is an indie games development and virtual simulation studio. They combine knowledge of developing computer games, with expertise in emerging technologies like machine learning, virtual/mixed reality, digital simulations and robotics.
As Liverpool 5G Consortium partners, during the Liverpool 5G Health and Social Care Testbed CGA Simulation developed a comprehensive network planning tool using ‘digital twin’ technology, which enables those planning a 5G network to work offline first to accurately plot line-of-sight for 5G receivers, assessing the environment and working around obstacles like trees or high buildings. This reduces the manual workload and resources required to plan a 5G network, significantly reducing costs and time required.
CGA also created the Loneliness Quizzing and Gaming App, a social gaming app that brings people together to take part in online quizzing, games and chat to combat social isolation.
During the Liverpool 5G Create: Connecting Health and Social Care project, CGA Simulation will continue to provide and update the planning tool to enhance network planning, and will be trialling the ChillPanda mental health app.
