Pagination or Media Count:
Current virtual interfaces imperfectly simulate the motion dynamics of the real world. Conflicting visual and vestibular cues of self-motion are believed to result in vestibulo-ocular reflex VOR adaptations and simulator sickness, which raises health and safety issues surrounding virtual environment VE exposure. Four experiments were conducted to examine the effects of conflicting visual-vestibular cues through employment of typically occurring virtual interface scenarios. Subjects were exposed for 30 minutes to a head-coupled virtual interface, completing visual search tasks using active, unrestricted head movement rotations.
