Abstract

Results are presented from a transfer effects study of a visuohaptic borescope simulator developed for non-destructive aircraft inspection training. The borescope simulator supports multi-point collision detection to effect haptic feedback as the virtual probe slides along and collides with rigid surfaces. Such probe maneuvering is shown to be a significant aspect of the inspection task that benefits from training, regardless of whether a real or virtual probe simulator is used to provide the training.
