As part of our ongoing driving research, the GT Sonification Lab has adapted and evolved a driving simulator sickness screening protocol that is quick, efficient, effective, and easy to administer. There is a paper-and-pencil version, and also an electronic version of the survey; and a procedure that involves: (1) a baseline survey, (2) a brief drive in the simulator, and (3) a post-drive survey. We have found that symptoms or discomfort become evident very quickly, and this procedure captures those participants effectively. Technical Report in PDF format describes the procedure and the protocol that we have completed. The ZIP archive contains all of the resources, including the NADS MiniSIM simulator files, and the screening protocol files. The Tech Report is also included in the ZIP archive. This download includes version 1.1 of the Java screening software, released Feb 2014, which includes a small bug fix, correcting the numeric calculation of sickness scores.
