Pointman User Interface for Dismounted Infantry Simulation

Produced by Dr. Jim Templeman and Patricia Denbrook, Immersive Simulation Section

Pointman is a seated user interface for dismounted infantry simulation. It employs a head tracker, gamepad, and sliding foot pedals to give the user more precise control the movement of his avatar through a virtual environment. The Immersive Simulation Section at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) developed the Pointman user interface. This video explains how it works.
