About the Edition

This thesis addresses the problem that virtual environments (VE"s) do not possess a practical, intuitive, and comfortable interface that allows a user to control a virtual human"s movements in real-time. Such a device would give the user the feeling of being immersed in the virtual world, greatly expanding the usability of today"s virtual environments. The approach was to develop an interface for the upper body, since it is through this part of users" anatomy that they interact most with their environment. Lower body motion can be more easily scripted. Implementation includes construction of a kinematic model of the upper body. The model is then manipulated in real-time with inputs from electromagnetic motion tracking sensors places on the user. Research resulted in an interface that is easy to use and allows its user limited interaction with a VE. The device takes approximately one sixth the time to don and calibrate as do mechanical interfaces with similar capability. It tracks thirteen degrees of freedom. Upper body position is tracked, allowing the users to move through the VE. Users can orient their upper body and control the movements of one arm. Uncorrected position data from two trackers was used to generate clavicle joint angles. Difficulty in controlling figure motion indicates that the sensors used lack sufficient registration for this purpose. Therefore, the interface software uses only orientation data for computing joint angles.

A fully immersive set-up for remote interaction and neurorehabilitation based on virtual body ownership. Although telerehabilitation systems represent one of the most technologically appealing clinical solutions for the immediate future, they still present limitations that prevent their standardization. Here we propose an integrated approach that includes three key and novel factors: (a) fully. The Human brain is the central organ of the human nervous system, and with the spinal cord makes up the central nervous system. The Human brain controls most of the activities of the body, processing, integrating, and coordinating the information it receives from the sense organs, and making decisions as to the instructions sent to the rest of the body.

Effectiveness of fully immersive virtual reality [4, 5]. Full immersion can be achieved though model-based techniques (e.g., capturing a few degrees of freedom and reproducing the captured human motion in a 3D avatar) or image-based techniques (e.g., creating a model of the human from large scale camera arrays and computer vision).

Image. In Study 1, participants traversed a three-dimensional Immersive articulation of the human upper body in a virtual environment book room in which a virtual human stood. In Study 2, a virtual human approached participants.

In both studies, participant gender, virtual human gender, virtual human gaze behavior, and whether virtual humans were allegedly controlled by humans (i.e., avatars) or computers (i.e., agents Cited by:   It is found that human egocentric depth perception in a virtual environment (VE) has significant errors compared to real physical environment.

The input to the system is an image of the human body and correspondences of several body landmarks, while the output is the set of 3D coordinates of the landmarks in a body-centric coordinate system.

Introduction. The potential use of modern technology as an educational and research tool has received attention across many areas; Immersive Virtual Environments (IVEs) are a particularly interesting case of such technology (Bailenson et al.,Blascovich et al.,Limniou et al.,Loomis et al.,Raja et al., ).A specific example of immersive technology recently Cited by: CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Abstract: Since the first time the term "Virtual Reality " (VR) has been used back in the 60s, VR has evolved in different manners becoming more and more similar to the real world.

Two different kinds of VR can be identified: non-immersive and immersive. The former is a computer-based environment that can simulate. Slater, ) and (Riva et al., )). A key requirement for a successful experience in an immersive virtual environment (IVE) is the rep-resentation of the participant, or its avatar (Pandzic et al., ; Slater et al., ; Slater et al., ).
