Event Title

SETVR: Scenario Exposure Training and Virtual Reality

Research Mentor(s)

Shameem Ahmed

Description

Individuals with Autism often struggle with picking up social cues given off by non-vocal signals. We propose a system that combines wearable devices with Head-Mounted Display Virtual Reality. This system will allow users to gain more exposure to “rare” social situations and allow them to explore how these situations play out and how to deal with them. We will be collecting stress data on the user and using this in conjunction with user feedback and their reactions to the simulation to evaluate the effectiveness of the simulation for exposure therapy. This will help us to understand how they deal with these situations and provide them with qualitative feedback that will be useful in real world situations.
