BACKGROUND For virtual environments (VEs) to be useful in training it is important to understand the negative effects of VE exposure. The purpose of this study was to observe head movements in virtual and real environments and the relation between those movements and simulator sickness. METHOD There were 48 men who were trained in 4-person teams in either a head-mounted display (HMD)-based VE or in a real world environment. Head position data were collected in both systems and simulator… CONTINUE READING
