Virtual Reality (VR) sickness can cause intense discomfort, shorten the duration of a VR experience, and create an aversion to further use of VR. [...] Key Result Our data suggests that by strategically and automatically manipulating FOV during a VR session, we can reduce the degree of VR sickness perceived by participants and help them adapt to VR, without decreasing their subjective level of presence, and minimizing their awareness of the intervention.Expand
PhantomLegs: Reducing Virtual Reality Sickness Using Head-Worn Haptic Devices
TLDR
Results show that the proposed new approach to reduce VR sickness, called PhantomLegs, significantly reduces VR sickness during the initial exposure while remaining comfortable to users.
Virtual Reality Sickness: A Review of Causes and Measurements
TLDR
A reorganized the causes of VR sickness into three major factors (hardware, content, and human factors) and investigated the sub-component of each factor and proposed a multimodal fidelity hypothesis to give an insight into future studies.
Virtual Reality Sickness Mitigation Methods: A Comparative Study in a Racing Game
Using virtual reality (VR) head-mounted displays (HMDs) can induce VR sickness. VR sickness can cause strong discomfort, decrease users’ presence and enjoyment, especially in games, shorten the
Reducing VR Sickness Through Peripheral Visual Effects
TLDR
Reducing optical flow in peripheral vision is a promising approach to reduce VR sickness with head-mounted displays (HMD) and future potential lies in adjusting visual effect parameters to maximize impact for large user groups.
Visually-Induced Motion Sickness Reduction via Static and Dynamic Rest Frames
TLDR
An enhanced version of rest frames-portions of the virtual environment that remain fixed in relation to the real world and do not move as the user virtually moves are presented, where the opacity of the rest frame changes in response to visually perceived motion as users virtually traversed thevirtual environment.
Using Visual Guides to Reduce Virtual Reality Sickness in First-Person Shooter Games: Correlation Analysis
TLDR
The experimental results of this study indicate that the visual guide can achieve VR sickness reduction while maintaining user presence and immersion in the virtual environment.
Using Visual Guides to Reduce Virtual Reality Sickness in First-Person Shooter Games: Correlation Analysis (Preprint)
BACKGROUND The virtual reality (VR) content market is rapidly growing due to an increased supply of VR devices such as head-mounted displays (HMDs), whereas VR sickness (reported to occur while
The Effect of a Foveated Field-of-view Restrictor on VR Sickness
TLDR
A foveated Fov restrictor is developed and the effect of dynamically moving the center of the FOV restrictor according to the user’s eye gaze position is explored, with a significant difference in eye gaze behavior, as measured by eye gaze dispersion.
Estimating the simulator sickness in immersive virtual reality with optical flow analysis
TLDR
FOV restrictor is one of the successful ways that can effectively reduce optical flow from peripheral vision and make users feel more comfortable in VR, however, the immersiveness in VR will be declined due to the limited size of FOV.
Field-of-View Restriction to Reduce VR Sickness Does Not Impede Spatial Learning in Women
TLDR
This study found that a dynamic FOV restrictor was equally effective in reducing VR sickness in both sexes, and no sex differences in VR sickness incidence were found.

Simulator sickness and presence in a high FOV virtual environment
TLDR
A study to address the experience of simulator sickness and presence under different display and user role configurations with the NAVE (Non-expensive Automatic Virtual Environment), a new virtual environment display system developed at Georgia Tech.
Effects of field of view on presence, enjoyment, memory, and simulator sickness in a virtual environment
TLDR
The results indicated that presence, enjoyment and SS varied as a function of the display FOV, with higher SSQ and presence subscale scores with increasing FOV.
Simulator Sickness Questionnaire: An enhanced method for quantifying simulator sickness.
Simulator sickness (SS) in high-fidelity visual simulators is a byproduct of modem simulation technology. Although it involves symptoms similar to those of motion-induced sickness (MS), SS tends to
Virtual reality induced symptoms and effects (VRISE): Comparison of head mounted display (HMD), desktop and projection display systems
TLDR
Recommendations are offered concerning design and use of VR systems in order to minimise VRISE as the most notable finding was that of high inter- and intra-participant variability.

Abstract : Virtual Reality (also known as Virtual Environment or VE) technology shows many promising applications in areas of training, medicine, architecture, astronomy, data handling,
A discussion of cybersickness in virtual environments
TLDR
A number of the primary factors that contribute to the cause of cybersickness are discussed, three conflicting cybersickenness theories that have been postulated are described, and some possible methods for reducing cyberedickness in VEs are discussed.
Redirected Walking
TLDR
This dissertation develops Redirection, discusses its theoretical and physiological underpinnings, and presents results to show that it can be used to make the user turn themselves, without causing the user to be aware of Redirection and without unacceptably increasing the user's level of simulator sickness.
Leveraging change blindness for redirection in virtual environments
TLDR
Primary findings revealed that a wide field-of-view increases pointing accuracy and that experienced gamers reported greater sense of presence than those with little or no experience with 3D video games.
Cybersickness is Not Simulator Sickness
TLDR
It is found, after examination of eight experiments using different VE systems, that the profile of cybersickness is sufficiently different from simulator sickness — with Disorientation being the predominant symptom and Oculomotor the least.
A Literature Survey for Virtual Environments: Military Flight Simulator Visual Systems and Simulator Sickness
TLDR
This paper focuses on research that produces specific, measured results that apply to VE research, and focuses on military literature that may be hard for traditional academics to locate via the standard journals.
