Identifying cybersickness in virtual reality (VR) applications such as games in a fast, precise, non-intrusive, and non-disruptive way remains challenging. Several factors can cause cybersickness, and their identification will help find its origins and prevent or minimize it. One such factor is virtual movement. Movement, whether physical or virtual, can be represented in different forms. One way to represent and store it is with a temporally annotated point sequence. Because a sequence is…

The impact of task workload on cybersickness

The results indicate that task workload affects cybersickness and its effect could be based on a threshold of workload, and highlights the need for task workload and attention to be studied as components of the mechanisms underlying cybersICKness.

VRCockpit: Mitigating Simulator Sickness in VR Games Using Multiple Egocentric 2D View Frames

Results show that VRCockpit has the potential to mitigate SS and still allows players to have the same level of immersion and gameplay performance, and to study its effectiveness, two different experiments are conducted.

Integration and Evaluation of an Immersive Virtual Platform

It is confirmed that the general QoE is improved in terms of immersion and motion sickness by using the proposed immersive virtual platform, and the statistical analysis is provided to support the hypotheses that for the proposed VR platform, participants with the loosely synchronous motion are more immersed and less likely to feel motion sickness.

Eyes on me: Investigating the role and influence of eye-tracking data on user modeling in virtual reality

This paper examined the role and influence of eye-tracking data in predicting a level of cybersickness and types of locomotion and developed and applied the same structure of a deep learning model to the multi-sensory data collected from two different studies, highlighting a high applicability of the model to sensor data in a VR context.

Earth-Fixed Books Reduce Motion Sickness When Reading With a Head-Mounted Display

There are concerns that viewing two-dimensional (2D) content such as web pages on a head-mounted display (HMD) in the car may aggravate motion sickness. This is because when 2D content is fixed to a

Editorial: Cybersickness in VR applications

This topic collection has collected five thought-provoking articles that help shed some further light on the issue of cybersickness and its mitigation in applications.

Effect of Render Resolution on Gameplay Experience, Performance, and Simulator Sickness in Virtual Reality Games

The results indicate that 2K resolution is an important threshold for an enhanced gameplay experience without affecting performance and increasing SS levels, and the resolution from 1K to 4K has no significant difference in player performance.



Evaluating discrete viewpoint control to reduce cybersickness in virtual reality

Two discrete movement techniques, rotation snapping and translation snapping, were experimentally evaluated and significantly reduced participant cybersickness levels and reduced participant nausea levels, especially with longer VR exposure.

Rotation Blurring: Use of Artificial Blurring to Reduce Cybersickness in Virtual Reality First Person Shooters

Rotation Blurring (RB), uniformly blurring the screen during rotational movements to reduce cybersickness is proposed, and it is found that the blurring technique led to an overall reduction in sickness levels of the participants and delayed its onset.

Predicting cybersickness based on user's gaze behaviors in HMD-based virtual reality

The results suggest that participants’ eye movements can serve as a significant index for predicting cybersickness when considering natural gaze behaviors during a VR experience, and develop a regression model using eye-movement features to demonstrate the SVM theory on the basis of participant’s eye movements.

Real-Time Detection of Simulator Sickness in Virtual Reality Games Based on Players' Psychophysiological Data during Gameplay

A Long Short-Term Memory neural network is trained with the dataset eye-tracking and character movement data to detect Simulator Sickness in real-time and results indicate that, in VR games, the model is an accurate and efficient way to detect SS inreal-time.
