Virtual Reality

The CAMH Virage VS500M Simulator is used for driving behaviour trials. It features the driver’s side instrument cluster, steering wheel, controls, and center console of a GM compact car. The steering wheel provides dynamic force feedback, as do the brake and accelerator pedals. The visual system consists of five channels, including three 50-inch screens providing a 180º field of view in the front. Two additional 17” side displays are included to provide visual feedback for the left and right blind zones.

An immersive VR environment allows the testing of cognitive and psychological functions of patients with schizophrenia in an ecological simulation. The equipment consists of two high-powered computers with large screens or head-mounted displays running a custom software package developed specifically for this application. The VR software consists of a virtual city in which participants can navigate or complete certain tasks designed to test motivation.
