Coaching Driving Skills in a Shiphandling Trainer

Bruce Roberts

The benefits of using virtual environments for training are widely accepted, but challenges remain: to provide personalized embedded instruction in addition to pure practice, to provide a level of fidelity adequate to support the instructional goals of the trainer, and to deliver these capabilities cost-effectively in order to encourage their wide-spread adoption. The COVE (Conning Officer Virtual Environment) project is addressing these challenges in the context of shiphandling training for the US Navy; in particular, it focuses on the collection of skills known as Seaman’s Eye. COVE combines two technologies--a virtual environment and a tutoring system.
