Distance Perception in Virtual Environments
Virtual Environments Group, Clemson University, Spring-Summer 2011

I assisted and co-authored an experiment investigating the difference in near-field distance estimation in a real world (RW) environment and an immersive virtual environment (IVE). This work was published in ACM's TAP journal from being one of the top 5 papers at APGV 2011. I also presented this work at APGV 2011 in Toulouse, France.

We found there are significant differences between the way we perceive depth in a virtual world versus the real world. While this has been understood in action space for quite some time, it has not been studied much in near space, if at all, before this experiment. I encourage you to read our paper!
