When existing operators or drivers display performance deficits or even low-level ability, safety and productivity will suffer. We offer state-of-the-art technology and psychology to train the core abilities required for optimal operation of vehicles or machinery, using the world’s leading computer based psychology platform, the Vienna Test System (VTS) developed by SCHUHFRIED, a global company headquartered in Austria.
The VTS training system CogniPlus, is used for developing, rehabilitating, or optimising cognitive, psychomotor, and perceptual functions. CogniPlus is based on up-to-date, scientific knowledge of cognitive functions and the ways in which operators can be trained.
The realistic design of the training programs helps clients to integrate their progress into their operator roles. Fully integrated with our VTS assessment program, this provides a streamlined diagnosis, training and post-training evaluation capability.
Realistic and easy to learn training modules are available to develop, rehabilitate or optimise abilities such as:
Here are some example screen shots of various training user interfaces.
Attention: Divided – The DIVID training program trains divided attention – the ability to perform different tasks simultaneously.
Attention: Alertness – The ALERT training program trains the alertness dimension of attention – the ability to temporarily increase and sustain the intensity of attention.
Attention: Vigilance – The VIG training program trains the attention dimension of vigilance – the ability to sustain attention over a lengthy period of time under monotonous stimulus conditions.
Attention: Focused– The FOCUS training program trains focused attention – the ability to respond only to relevant stimuli among a high density of distracting stimuli.
