  title={The perception of egocentric distances in virtual environments - A review},
  author={Rebekka S. Renner and Boris M. Velichkovsky and Jens R. Helmert},
  journal={ACM Comput. Surv.},
Over the last 20 years research has been done on the question of how egocentric distances, i.e., the subjectively reported distance from a human observer to an object, are perceived in virtual environments. This review surveys the existing literature on empirical user studies on this topic. In summary, there is a mean estimation of egocentric distances in virtual environments of about 74% of the modeled distances. Many factors possibly influencing distance estimates were reported in the… CONTINUE READING
