Title

Simulator Sickness

Abstract

Simulators have become an irreplaceable training tool. As a result, more students are being trained on these devices. Simulator sickness has been observed in many cases and this syndrome affects the training results. This paper will attempt to explain simulator sickness, its incidence, causes, and effects on the trainees. This paper will attempt to understand the relationship between simulator sickness and motion sickness in order to apply motion sickness theories to explain simulator sickness. We will look at how motion is perceived and evaluate the design criteria that are important in order to understand and eliminate the occurrence of simulator sickness. With this in mind, we will look at the cost effectiveness of simulators as training devices and the measuring techniques and tools needed to predict and measure simulator sickness. This evaluation will lead to recommendations on how to minimize or eliminate the unpleasant simulator sickness in order to improve these training tools.
