Volunteers needed for "Human Performance and Cognitive Workload in Haptic, Audio and Visual Environments" study

I am a graduate student from Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Waterloo. I am contacting you because I am conducting a study in my graduate research for my Master’s thesis on the topic of “Human Performance and Cognitive Workload in Haptic, Audio and Visual Environments” under the supervision of Professor David Wang of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo. I am currently seeking volunteers as participants in this study.

If you volunteer for this study, you will be asked to wear a noise cancelling headset, use a computer monitor and use a haptic device. A haptic device is used for bilateral touch communication between the user and a computer simulation. You will be asked to complete 3 virtual reality settings. Each setting will last 5 minutes. A one minute training session will precede each virtual reality setting. A break will be given after completing 3 tasks. After completing all virtual reality setting, you will be asked to fill out a questionnaire and asked general questions about your experience and you will be given a feedback and appreciation letter. This study will approximately last 30 minutes.  

I would like to assure you that the study has been reviewed and received ethics clearance through a University of Waterloo Research Ethics Committee (ORE#20633). However, the final decision to participate is yours. If you are interested in participating, please contact me at with the best days and best times for you. 

Should you have any questions or concerns about the study, please do not hesitate to contact Professor David Wang at or 519-888-4567 x33968.
