Towards a Better Understanding of VR Sickness: Physical Symptom Prediction for VR Contents

  title={Towards a Better Understanding of VR Sickness: Physical Symptom Prediction for VR Contents},
  author={Hak Gu Kim and Sangmin Lee and Seong-Tae Kim and Heoun-taek Lim and Yong Man Ro},
We address the black-box issue of VR sickness assessment (VRSA) by evaluating the level of physical symptoms of VR sickness. For the VR contents inducing the similar VR sickness level, the physical symptoms can vary depending on the characteristics of the contents. Most of existing VRSA methods focused on assessing the overall VR sickness score. To make better understanding of VR sickness, it is required to predict and provide the level of major symptoms of VR sickness rather than overall…

Measurement of exceptional motion in VR video contents for VR sickness assessment using deep convolutional autoencoder
A new objective metric of exceptional motion in VR video contents for VR sickness assessment is proposed that takes into account motion information that is one of the most important factors in determining the overall degree of VR sickness.
VRSA Net: VR Sickness Assessment Considering Exceptional Motion for 360° VR Video
A novel objective VR sickness assessment (VRSA) network based on deep generative model for automatically predicting the VR sickness score and demonstrated that the proposed VRSA network achieved a high correlation with human perceptual score for VR sickness.
Physiological Fusion Net: Quantifying Individual VR Sickness with Content Stimulus and Physiological Response
A novel physiological fusion deep network is proposed which estimates individual VR sickness with content stimulus and physiological response and achieves meaningful correlation with human subjective scores.
Towards a Machine-Learning Approach for Sickness Prediction in 360° Stereoscopic Videos
This work builds a dataset of stereoscopic 3D videos and their corresponding sickness ratings in order to quantify their nauseogenicity, and trains a machine learning algorithm on hand-crafted features from each video, learning the contributions of these various features to the sickness ratings.
Virtual Reality Sickness Predictor: Analysis of visual-vestibular conflict and VR contents
This paper proposes a framework called VR sickness predictor (VRSP) using the interaction model between user's motion and the vestibular system, and extracts two types of features: a) perceptual motion feature through a visual-vestibular interaction model, and b) statistical content feature that affects user motion perception.
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
The Perceptual Quality of the Oculus Rift for Immersive Virtual Reality
A strong relationship between observers’ fear of heights and vertigo experienced during one of the virtual scenarios involving heights, suggesting that observers felt a strong sensation of presence within the virtual worlds.
An evaluation of Heart Rate and ElectroDermal Activity as an objective QoE evaluation method for immersive virtual reality environments
This paper proposes the use of affordable consumer electronics to capture objective physiological metrics: Heart Rate (HR) and ElectroDermal Activity (EDA) and examines the relationship between these objective metrics and user QoE captured via a post-test questionnaire.
Reducing Visual Discomfort with HMDs Using Dynamic Depth of Field
An evaluation used to judge the effectiveness of dynamic depth-of-field blur in an effort to reduce discomfort caused by exposure to stereoscopic content on HMDs reports a decrease in symptom severity caused by HMD exposure, indicating that dynamic DoF can effectively reduce visual discomfort.
