About the Lab

Purdue HRD Virtual Lab is equipped with a variety of cutting-edge equipment critical in the design, development, and evaluation of phases of experimental designs using virtual training simulations. Equipment such as GoPro Omni and GoPro Hero to create 360-degree training simulation content, Oculus Rift Virtual Reality Headsets to deliver virtual reality simulations, Microsoft HoloLens for augmented reality training simulations, iMotions software to collect biometric data on eye tracking (ET), galvanic skin responses (GSR), electrocardiography (ECG), facial expression analysis (FEA) and facial electromyography (fEMG). Such research innovation is instrumental in the Lab’s ability to conduct cutting-edge research in advancing theoretical underpinnings of HRD through a data triangulation method to study the HRD phenomena both through traditional methods of quantitative and qualitative methods but also biometric data systems.
