In this paper, a “learning by observation” method, which is most commonly employed motion for learning, is examined. In the observation-based learning method, learners generally observe, recognize, and reproduce a model-performed reference motions only from one direction.
Subjects can observe the model from various directions: the orientation of the model’s trunk doesn’t accord with that of the subjects when viewing from a direction other than from behind the model. It prevents the subjects from learning the model’s reference motions easily
because the subjects need to rotate the model mentally (it is called the “mental rotation”). On the other hand, when viewing from behind the avatar in order to avoid the mental rotation cost, subjects would occasionally encounter occlusion problems. Therefore, we have studied perceptual
characteristics of various observation views through a psychophysical experiment. Two kinds of physical values were employed for evaluating subject’s responses. One is the delayed time for reproduced motion onset, and the other is the error rate of reproduced motion direction. The results
suggest that the perception suffers ill-effects from the mental rotation in two ways: the amount of the mental rotation increases the delayed time, and the presence of the mental rotation does the directional errors.

For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.
Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
