Head-coupled virtual reality systems can cause symptoms of sickness (cybersickness). A study has been conducted to investigate the effects of scene oscillations on the level and types of cybersickness. Sixteen male subjects participated in the experiments. They were exposed to four 20-minute virtual simulation sessions, in a balanced order with 10 days separation. The 4 simulation sessions exposed the subjects to similar visual scene oscillation in different axis: pitch axis, yaw axis, roll…

Quantifying Scene Movement with ‘Spatial Velocity’ and its Effects on Cybersickness
Viewing wide field-of-view scene movement with a Virtual Reality (VR) display can cause symptoms of cybersickness (e.g., nausea and headache). It has been known that cybersickness is a type of
Cybersickness and Its Severity Arising from Virtual Reality Content: A Comprehensive Study
The experimental results show that individual characteristics (age and susceptibility) are also quantitatively associated with cybersickness level, and the proposed dataset is supposed to be widely applicable in general-purpose scenarios regarding cyberedickness quantification.
The effects of cybersickness on persons with multiple sclerosis
The GSR data suggests that the cybersickness may have induced similar physiological changes in participants with MS as participants without MS, albeit with greater variability in participants withoutMS, however, participants withMS had significantly lower GSR during VR exposure.
Virtual Reality Sickness: A Review of Causes and Measurements
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.
Cybersickness: a Multisensory Integration Perspective.
An approach to cybersickness based on sensory cue integration is discussed, focusing on the dynamic re-weighting of visual and vestibular signals for self-motion.
An Evaluation of Extrapolation and Filtering Techniques in Head Tracking for Virtual Environments to Reduce Cybersickness
Until future VR systems can significantly reduce latency, extrapolating head movements seems to provide a low-cost solution with an acceptable prediction error, although extrapolates the roll axis movements remains to be challenging.
Cybersickness prioritization and modeling
The intent of this thesis is to prioritize cybersickness human factors and develop models to predict effects and create a model created using experimental results using the individual, hardware and software.
Review on cybersickness in applications and visual displays
Varying effects due to display and rendering modes, such as visual display type and stereoscopic or monoscopic rendering, are compared and known and suspected application aspects that induce cybersickness are discussed.
Cybersickness in current-generation virtual reality head-mounted displays: systematic review and outlook
Results show that the nature of movement and, in particular, sensory mismatch as well as perceived motion have been the leading cause of CS, and an outlook on future research is suggested.


Aftereffects of Virtual Environment Exposure: Psychometric Issues
The present study revealed that the profile of Symptoms is distinguishable between VE systems and flight simulators, and incidence levels and total severity of symptoms is consistently greater in VE Systems as compared toFlight simulators and even space sickness.
Adaptation to vection-induced symptoms of motion sickness.
Preflight adaptation to visual-vestibular sensory mismatch may reduce motion sickness experienced in the environment of microgravity, and symptomatic and physiological improvement occurred after training in subjects susceptible to vection-induced motion sickness.
Cybersickness: Perception of Self-Motion in Virtual Environments
Although no single engineering solution is likely, the problem can be contained by a combination of engineering design, equipment calibration, and exposure management.
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

Both vomiting incidence and illness rating correlated well with root mean square vertical z-axis acceleration and the effect of exposure duration was investigated, producing suggestions for a combined measure of acceleration and time.
