Simulated Decision Making Under Stress
on the Battlefield
Improving decision making in military setting is a highly sought after topic. The application in VirtuTrace introduces participants to military scenarios where significant stress is being induced through battle conditions. VirtuTrace traces participants decision making processes, their situational awareness, and their level of stress throughout the process.
Current efforts are focused on developing an avatar with situational awareness that will respond differently based on its perception of the situation. This feature will allow for using virtual scenes multiple times while circumstances vary based on participant behavior and changes to avatar character settings.
