Enhancing Human performance using Virtual Reality, Wearable Computing, Cognitive Neuroscience and Mental Training
講演者氏名：Prof. Bruce H. Thomas (the University of South Australia)
The talk will provide an over of IVE: Australian Research Centre for Interactive and Virtual Environments. Advanced and futuristic technologies, such as integrated augmented reality displays and drone control systems. The cognitive impact of the user’s use of these technologies is important for designers of these systems, yet little research has been conducted in this area. The experiment presented in this work we measured brain alpha power while participants completed a maze navigation task, aided by a virtual drone and augmented reality-like annotations in a virtual environment. Different conditions were designed to test whether varying drone control systems and visualizations could result in different measured alpha power. The results show that alpha power fluctuations are sensitive to manipulation of the virtual drone control system, making it a powerful and potentially real-time measure of a control system’s difficulty of use and cognitive impact on the user.
