Abstract
This protocol defines a human performance experiment to assess the feasibility of controlling the motions of a ship motion simulator (SMS) to achieve a moderate severity of motion sickness, which is sustainable for a substantial time. For this experiment, motion sickness severity is assessed by both the subject and experimenter, and the definition of substantial time is bounded by the two-hour duration of each subject’s exposure to motions in the SMS. The secondary goals of this experiment are to examine methods for assessing the effects of moderate levels of motion sickness severity on: (i) the reliability of subjective assessment of task duration, (ii) the reliability of subjective assessment of problems performing cognitive tasks; and, (iii) to explore techniques for assessing problems with complex decision making.
