Agent-based Models (ABM) use both first-person and third-person perspectives. This project aims to develop an AR/VR experiment application which is compatible with all devices such as Meta quest and Web XR. This will in turn allow learners and researchers from around the world to access and interact with the models. This application will also incorporate haptic feedback for users to make it more interactive. A well known experimental paradigm (e.g., Morris Water Maze), where the subject can interact with both the environment and stimuli, will be used. This environment should allow for participant data to be collected, and will exhibit a high degree of environmental realism.
