Embodiments relate to a portable device that is configured to project an image onto a secondary surface, and to support interaction with the projected image. The device is configured with an embedded projector to display indicia on a secondary surface. More specifically, the projector is configured to project an interactive image onto a secondary surface. The device is employed to communicate and interact with one or more components displayed within the image. Data related to the interaction is acquired by the device and stored local to the device or communicated to a secondary device.

Embodiments of the invention relate to a calibration device for interaction with a cognitive assessment device, employing the calibration device as a quality control device for interaction with the assessment device, and the calibration device in combination with the assessment device for every assessment. The calibration device includes at least two sensors for measurement of light and pressure. As the calibration device interfaces with the assessment device, or an alternative secondary device, both light intensity and capacitance are applied to test reaction time. Latencies associated with reaction time testing are detected, and thereafter are applied to assessment output.

The overall goal of the proposed effort is to demonstrate the technical feasibility of integrating advanced multimodal interface technologies and advanced embedded performance assessment metrics within current and emergent naval engineering maintenance VE training platforms. Our advanced interface technologies will support visual, auditory, haptic, and olfactory modalities and our advanced embedded assessments will measure cognitive, perceptual, and psychomotor skills. The integration of these interfaces and assessments will be guided by the long-term (i.e., Phase II) goal of optimizing the training experience for acquisition and sustainment of naval engineering maintenance skills. This effort seeks to identify requisite skills and advanced science and technology tools to support training, retention, and assessment of these skills within immersive VEs, as well as mobile (tablet-based) tools for use in operational environments. Specifically, AnthroTronix, Inc. (ATinc) and the National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing (CRESST) propose to design, develop, and validate an Interactive Next-generation Testbed Environment for Retention and Assessment of Computer-based Training (INTERACT) prototype that can be integrated with current and emergent computer-based training platforms to support optimized training and retention of naval engineering maintenance skills.

This Subsequent Phase II Proposal is an extension of Phase II contract N00014-11-C-0420. The overall objective of the proposed Subsequent Phase II effort is to develop and provide initial validation for a mobile training platform and framework that will support optimized refresher training for a variety of medical skills. Maintenance of specialized skills during periods of nonuse presents a significant problem within the military medical domain, and there is currently an alarming lack of research and development to support scientifically-grounded retraining pedagogy for such complex skills. Leveraging surgical skill decay research and a prototype glove-based training interface developed under the initial SBIR effort, this effort seeks to develop and validate a Surgical Skills Training and Assessment Instrument (SUSTAIN) mobile app platform, which will enable psychomotor and cognitive skills to be trained and assessed in isolation, as well as in conjunction with multi-dimensional skill components. Additionally, this interface will support interactive instruction, providing additional engagement and motivation, which is lacking in many mobile and web-based training curricula. Options are proposed to transition this technology and extend this capability to the domain of Combat Casualty Care.

Embodiments of the invention relate to correlation of physiological data from two or more sources in real-time. As data is gathered from one or more remote physiological sensors, evaluation of associated physiological data takes place in real-time. The sensor data is correlated with other forms of data including objective physiological data, subjective physiological data, cognitive data, and/or quantitative input for multi-variate data analytics to assess and correlate the data. Alerts are generated, applications are activated, and windows are created to support the correlation and associated communication.


Patent

A communication system, method, and computer program product supported by electro-dermal monitoring physiological signals at the surface of the skin. The system includes a garment comprising an electro-dermal interface. The interface includes two or more electrodes in an array of electrodes. The electrodes are associated with three or more polarities. Two or more measurement circuits associated with respective measurement functions are in communication with the electrodes, including a first measurement circuit associated with a first measurement function and a second measurement circuit associated with a second measurement function. Switching circuitry comprising two or more pole switches, with each switch in communication with a respective electrode. A controller is in communication with the switching circuitry to change a measurement function. Changing the measurement function includes changing a polarity associated with at least one of the electrodes.

Embodiments of the invention relate to cognitive performance and/or psychological assessment of a subject. Measurement of behavioral status and cognitive efficiency is based upon batteries of tests that include a combination of cognitive and/or psychological tests. A module is provided with a processing unit in communication with memory to administer the cognitive and/or psychological tests and to compute an assessment. Results of the assessment are conveyed on a visual display of the module. In some cases, additional sensor data may be added to the assessment.
