As the use of virtual and augmented reality increases, it is important to understand how these technologies affect user performance. The introduction of stereoscopic remote vision system (RVS) technology in air refueling tankers means that the performance and level of visual fatigue
of aircrew using stereoscopic displays are important operational factors to consider. Crosstalk occurs due to incomplete separation of the two images projected to the two eyes in a stereoscopic display and can degrade depth perception and cause discomfort and fatigue. A substantial amount
of previous research has described measurement of crosstalk, compared crosstalk for different display technologies, and examined the effect of crosstalk on viewing discomfort. Additional research has examined the effects of crosstalk on stereoscopic image quality and on the magnitude of perceived
depth from disparity and from monocular occlusions. The research described in this report shows that stereoscopic display crosstalk can substantially degrade depth discrimination under viewing conditions simulating a hyperstereoscopic RVS and could clearly be a performance limitation for tasks
requiring accurate depth perception such as air refueling.

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.
