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.
Performance Edge VR effectively trains controlled breathing skills in virtual reality – read our latest research publication
Our latest research manuscript is now published in PLoS ONE. The paper describes the conceptual design of Performance Edge VR, a virtual reality-based stress management training tool and evaluates the first module: controlled breathing.
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.
Alaska Airlines has introduced virtual reality to enhance in-flight entertainment experiences, but experts say this emerging type of technology could cause increased motion sickness.
Leading research on emerging Virtual and Augmented Reality technology will be showcased tomorrow when the University of Newcastle hosts the Australian Defence College (ADC) Simulation Forum.
