Abstract : An in-house study was conducted to review the status of simulation technology as applied to training, with emphasis on human factors problems encountered in visual and motion simulation. The effects of incorporating motion in ground-based visual simulators was considered with respect to its influence on training and its role on a possible inhibitor of simulator sickness. The position of the Human Factors Laboratory was expressed on several aspects of simulation related to training technology. (Author)
