At the request of NSF's Interactive Systems Program, a two-day invitational workshop was held March 23-24, 1992 at UNC Chapel Hill to identify and recommend future research directions in the area of "virtual environments" (VE. [...] Key Method The two-day schedule alternated between sessions of the entire group and sessions in the following specialty areas, around which the recommendations came to be organized: 1) Perception , 2) Human-Machine Software Interface , 3) Software, 4) Hardware, and 5…Expand
The Veos Project 1
The Virtual Environment Operating Shell (VEOS) was developed at University of Washington’s Human Interface Technology Laboratory as software infrastructure for the lab’s research in virtualExpand
The VEOS Project1
TLDR
The Virtual Environment Operating Shell (veos) was designed from scratch to provide a comprehensive and unified management facility to support generation of, interaction with, and maintenance of virtual environments. Expand
New directions in human-computer interaction: education, research, and practice
TLDR
A "Workshop on New Directions on Human-Computer Interaction Education and Research" was conducted on February 5-7, 1994, in Washington DC, to broaden the scope of previous recommendations and to embrace HCI as a core topic to be taught in all CS departments. Expand
Lessons about Virtual Environment Software Systems from 20 Years of VE Building
TLDR
Topics are organized under the major headings of 3D space management, supporting display hardware, interaction, event management, time management, computation, portability, and the observation that less can be better. Expand
Bridging the Gap between Students and Laboratory Experiments
TLDR
This research describes the elaboration of an industry relevant demonstrator for the advanced teaching of engineering students and uses a virtual reality simulator that is called the "Virtual Theatre" to enable a secure visit of elusive or dangerous places for students of technical studies. Expand
Effects of Variation in System Responsiveness on User Performance in Virtual Environments
TLDR
It is inferred that VE designers need not tightly control SDSR and may wish to vary SR control based on required visual feedback frequency, which may be used to improve the human-computer interface in a wide range of interactive graphical applications. Expand
Theoretical Foundations of a CSCL Script in Persistent Virtual Worlds According to the Contemporary Learning Theories and Models
Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) has proved to be one of the reliable contemporary approaches to education that is based on the fundamental principles of collaborative learningExpand
Performance Modeling of Interactive, Immersive Virtual Environments for Finite Element Simulations
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that the major components of the end-to-end lag are simulation, synchro nization, and rendering times; the use of the ATM network resulted in the network time constituting only a small fraction of the ending lag time. Expand
The interactive specification workspace: Specifying and designing the interaction issues of virtual reality training environments from within
TLDR
The Interaction Specification Workspace (ISW) architecture provides the interaction designer with the capability to specify the training interaction with the virtual environment using the Virtual Reality Multi Flow Graph (VR-MFG) as the underlying interaction specification model. Expand

Perception of circular heading from optical flow.
TLDR
There was an inverse relation between the radius of the observer's path and constant heading error, such that at small radii observers reported heading 3 degrees to the outside of the actual path with the ground and to the inside with the wall and cloud. Expand
