Long-term habitation in artificial or isolated work environments entail the risk of a deprivation of impulses including fatal dangers for the human psychology and performance.

The main focus of :enviRec (“:envihab – Recreation”) is the exploration of diverse approaches of compensating the deprivation of impulses. Therefore a presentation of authentic environmental effects will be created as a way for recovery for crew members. In touch with long-term studies of the :enviSim module and interdisciplinary research, the effects on crew members, team work and the supervision of the system as a whole will be quantified.

Following questions will be analysed in :enviRec:

  • Test of virtual methods that support relieving stress
  • Virtual reality and immersion
  • Impact of virtual methods on performance and social behaviour
