An effect of immersion is a desirable quality in VR interfaces and its improvement has received a lot of attention in recent years. However, enhancing immersion by eliciting feelings of embodiment and presence through multimodal interactions often requires expensive and bulky dedicated tracking systems. This renders these interactions prohibitable for mobile VR platforms. Our work focused on developing a voice and motion gesture controller with tactile feedback to induce physical sensations and arouse the feeling of embodiment and presence in mobile VR platforms. A mobile virtual reality interface was designed to validate our system through a user experiment. The results indicate that the feelings of presence, embodiment and overall immersion in the mobile VR interface were increased by the use of our system.

  • 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.
