about the game

DUST IS A VR TRAINING GAME WITH REAL-TIME BIOFEEDBACK

A custom controller measures diaphragm expansion to sense breathing and heart rate variability (HRV). This information about their physiological state is fed back to the player as a restriction of the visual field and a variety of other audio/visual cues.

This game-like environment, in our case a zombie shooter, proved more efficient to both train the physiological control of police trainers in stressful context and also extract meaningful behavioral metrics.
