Assessing User Proficiency through Virtual Simulations

Abstract

This paper describes a virtual simulation environment used for the following: 1) evaluating architectural designs, prior to construction, for ADA compliance, 2) as a simulation environment to provide users with appropriate training for power chair upgrades, and 3) as an environment for assessing the proficiency of users for using power chair equipment. We describe the configuration of the system, its hardware and software components, and our methods to improve the users' sense of immersion. Finally, we present our current focus on system improvements used for assessing user proficiency.
