Abstract:

The following review of literature was performed in support of a Small Business Innovative Research SBIR contract with the United States Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command TACOM. The project is titled Integrating a Motion Base into TARDECS CAVE Automatic Virtual Environment. The selection of topics for review was based on discussion and results from the Phase I and Phase I Option periods of the project as a CAVE-based ground vehicle driving simulator was developed. In addition, a general search of issues pertaining to simulator sickness, driving simulation, motion cueing, virtual reality, display systems, and general application of virtual environments was performed. Relevant findings are discussed in this document. The following sections include a general discussion of simulator sickness issues and how various driving simulator configuration options might affect the occurrence and severity of symptoms. It is assumed that the reader will have at least an intermediate knowledge of the application of virtual environments and driving simulation. In general, a topic area will be defined or explained, then a discussion of how the information from the literature may be applied to this program.
