Abstract

In a world, which is characterized by technical progress, virtual environment technologies become increasingly relevant. In this context, simulators are used as a cost and time efficient methods for investigating innovative developments, training effects, but also the influence of individual attributes such as the process of aging. Although the simulator technologies have been greatly developed in recent years, they are not able to perfectly replicate the real world, which causes problems of system adaptation and simulator sickness. In the paper at hand, we will focus both, the time of adaptation to the virtual environment and the phenomenon of simulator sickness under the aspect of mental abilities and the process of aging, based on a driving simulator study with 414 participants.
