Directional Multimodal Flow to Help Mitigate VR Sickness

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

One way to alleviate VR sickness is to reduce the sensory mismatch between the visual and vestibular organ regarding the motion perception. Mixing in the motion trail in the reverse direction to the original has been suggested as one such method. However, as such visual feedback can be content intrusive, we consider supplementing it by the non-visual multimodal reverse flow. In particular, we have devised methods to supply sound effects as if heard from the reverse direction, and vibration and air flow likewise. Our validation experiment has shown that the multimodal feedback was effective in significantly reducing the sickness, but its direction (reverse or not) did not have an effect as hypothesized.
