A Serious Approach to Sickness Prevention in Motion Base Simulators

Training personnel to operate machinery in the construction workplace requires a major devotion of time, resources, and safeguards. Recent methods involving virtual reality and motion base simulators have drastically enhanced the training process, but some users of these new methods report sickness and discomfort. This research aims to remedy this issue with a theoretical and data-driven approach to (1) identifying what makes a simulator nauseogenic, and (2) reducing or avoiding these patterns of motion. The expected benefits include a greater adoption of simulator technology across the market, due to a quantifiable improvement in the experience by means of a motion sickness reduction approach.
