The work this year shows a number of studies which provide a preliminary indication that STAR allows trainees to follow some mentor instructions more accurately. The main finding is that focus shifts were greatly reduced when using STAR as opposed to the conventional system. This is a reasonable result, given that a participant in the conventional condition is required to shift focus in order to access the instruction, while in the STAR condition accessing the instruction does not require shifting focus. Based on the completion of Experiment 1 we can state that on average, the placement error was considerably smaller when using the AR system than when using a separate screen. The tablet provides precise feedback as to where a pointer should be placed and the participant leverages this feedback to minimize placement error.
