A sick, non-energetic workforce can’t produce. Despite decades of work showing financial and workplace benefits of having rested employees, professional burnout has “reached epidemic proportions” according to Charlie DeWitt, VP of business development at Kronos.
Mobile Health to Objectively Measure Stress in Real-Time
DI has created an algorithm, called Operational Stress Index (OSI), that uses wearable physiological sensors to objectively measure stress in real-time for operational and training environments.
Adaptive Training for Visual Search Expertise
ScreenADAPT® is an adaptive x-ray training solution for enhanced visual detection. ScreenADAPT® develops core visual search skills faster through an individualized training path that addresses skill deficiencies, immediate feedback on progress and errors, dynamically created images of threat and bag images which keeps training fresh and unpredictable.
Design Interactive will be unveiling a predictive algorithm for cybersickness at this year’s Interservice/Industry, Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC). This individualized, predictive algorithm was developed from thousands of hours of physiological data captured during consumption of virtual content. The resultant predictive cybersickness index, or PCSI, can be used to evaluate virtual content for its potential to induce cybersickness and monitor a user’s progression toward sickness that may result in significant after effects.
