Auditory Distance Presentation in an Urban Augmented Reality Environment
Robert Albrecht, Tapio Lokki
Article No.: 5
DOI: 10.1145/2723568

Presenting points of interest in the environment by means of audio augmented reality offers benefits compared with traditional visual augmented reality and map-based approaches. However, presentation of distant virtual sound sources is...

Affordance Judgments in HMD-Based Virtual Environments: Stepping over a Pole and Stepping off a Ledge
Qiufeng Lin, John Rieser, Bobby Bodenheimer
Article No.: 6
DOI: 10.1145/2720020

People judge what they can and cannot do all the time when acting in the physical world. Can I step over that fence or do I need to duck under it? Can I step off of that ledge or do I need to climb off of it? These qualities of the...

The Influence of the Stereo Base on Blind and Sighted Reaches in a Virtual Environment
Rebekka S. Renner, Erik Steindecker, Mathias MüLler, Boris M. Velichkovsky, Ralph Stelzer, Sebastian Pannasch, Jens R. Helmert
Article No.: 7
DOI: 10.1145/2724716

In virtual environments, perceived distances are frequently reported to be shorter than intended. One important parameter for spatial perception in a stereoscopic virtual environment is the stereo base—that is, the distance between the two...
