Cybersickness-aware Tile-based Adaptive 360{\deg} Video Streaming

  title={Cybersickness-aware Tile-based Adaptive 360\{\deg\} Video Streaming},
  author={Chiao-Wen Lin and Chih-Hang Wang and De-Nian Yang and Wanjiun Liao},
In contrast to traditional videos, the imaging in virtual reality (VR) is 360°, and it consumes larger bandwidth to transmit video contents. To reduce bandwidth consumption, tile-based streaming has been proposed to deliver the focused part of the video, instead of the whole one. On the other hand, the techniques to alleviate cybersickness, which is akin to motion sickness and happens when using digital displays, have not been jointly explored with the tile selection in VR. In this paper, we…

EPASS360: QoE-Aware 360-Degree Video Streaming Over Mobile Devices
An Ensemble Prediction and Allocation based Streaming System, named as EPASS360, for delivering high Quality of Experience (QoE) 360-degree videos, with advantages of ensemble learning and allocation model, which enhances the QoE in various scenarios compared to state-of-the-art streaming approaches.
360ProbDASH: Improving QoE of 360 Video Streaming Using Tile-based HTTP Adaptive Streaming
A probabilistic approach to pre-fetch tiles countering viewport prediction error is leveraged, and a QoE-driven viewport adaptation system, 360ProbDASH, is designed that achieves at almost 39% gains on viewport PSNR, and 46% reduction on spatial quality variance against the existed viewports adaptation methods.
BAS-360°: Exploring Spatial and Temporal Adaptability in 360-degree Videos over HTTP/2
In BAS-360°, both spatial and temporal adaptabilities are explored in the bitrate selection for different tiles, and the objective is to minimize the bandwidth waste by allocating bandwidth to more important tiles (the tiles that are more likely to be watched).
Flare: Practical Viewport-Adaptive 360-Degree Video Streaming for Mobile Devices
This work conducts an IRB-approved user study and develops novel online algorithms that determine which spatial portions to fetch and their corresponding qualities for Flare, a practical system for streaming 360-degree videos on commodity mobile devices.

Enhancing latency performance through intelligent bandwidth allocation decisions: a survey and comparative study of machine learning techniques
The uplink latency performance of a converged network adopting an artificial neural network (ANN) supervised bandwidth allocation scheme is compared with those arising from using existing bandwidth allocation schemes and highlights the ability of the ANN to learn the association among bandwidth demand, network parameters, and the resulting uplinks latency such that the allocated bandwidth will always be optimized to enhance latency performance.
