The Centre for Advanced Training Systems (ATS) has a strong research focus, which is applied to all aspects of our activities.
Our research approach is integrated into all phases of project development, from initial project conception through to resource delivery.
At ATS we endeavour to push the boundaries on the applications of VR Technology and how it is applied to training and workplace culture.
Take a look at our recent blog posts, snippets of the Center in the media and our VR thinking.
Playing with radiation – a new virtual reality training application rolls out to University of Newcastle physics labs
The Centre for Advanced Training Systems (ATS) has worked closely with A/Prof. Vicki Keast, Prof. Thomas Nann and a team from the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences along with the University of Newcastle IT Innovation Team, led by Chief Information Officer Anthony Molinia, to develop a fantastic new virtual reality (VR)-based teaching tool exploring the interaction between radiation and matter.
The ADF, in partnership with the US and Singapore, is looking to significantly upgrade Australia’s military training ranges and approaches to answer the needs presented by a true 5th generation military.
Tiny changes on the surface of your skin may be the answer to early identification of stress, anxiety and depression before symptoms even present themselves, according to new research.
Post traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety can all be quite serious conditions, but it’s often difficult to determine who may be prone to developing them.
A new study has proven that cybersickness, which is caused by exposure to virtual reality (VR), may be the same clinical condition as ‘classic’ motion sickness caused by travelling.
Contrary to previous research, severe motion sickness and cybersickness, a type of motion sickness that stems from exposure to virtual reality, may be considered the same clinical condition, according to researchers.
In the hopes of utilising advanced tools to enhance resilience, a first-of-its kind project led by the University of Newcastle (UON) will explore Virtual Reality (VR) training as a new method to ensure Australian troops are equipped with resilience training ahead of deployment.
