Abstract
While a significant research has been conducted examining the transfer of training from VEs. Currently fidelity requirements are determined by performance measurements and subjective evaluations. It is often difficult to identify the specific design components that directly relate to transfer of training improvements. Furthermore, this method of design focuses on trial and error, and is therefore time consuming, undirected, and may result in false associations between performance and VE characteristics. For example, unless each component of the new simulator design is introduced separately, it will not be known which fidelity design improvements bear the strongest significance to performance improvements. Thus, a more comprehensive assessment of the quality of interaction with a simulation based on changes in recordable brain and peripheral bioelectrical signals is needed to effectively identify the specific components of simulation that bare relevance to real world operational tasks. The PerceiVE Design Tool uses physiologically-based measures to identify fidelity requirements for a variety of virtual training environments to enhance transfer to real-world operational tasks.
