Abstract : This is the final report for DARPA grant DAMD17-94-J-4113 on the introduction of olfactory stimuli into virtual reality for medical training applications. The project addresses the range of issues that are required for such stimuli to be used for this purpose including: odorant delivery, wireless operation, odor representation, odor effects on performance, and graphic simulation. While the purpose of this report is to describe the efforts of the past year and the end state of the project as a whole, it is also desirable to describe enough of the previous years' efforts to provide context for what has been done more recently.
