How Visual Motion Cues Can Influence Sickness For In-Car VR

McGill, M., Ng, A. and Brewster, S. A. (2017) How Visual Motion Cues Can Influence Sickness For In-Car VR. CHI '17: CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Denver, CO, USA, 6-11 May 2017.

This video demonstrates our research into the use of VR Head Mounted Displays (HMDs) in-car and in-motion. Immersive HMDs offer new possibilities for entertainment and productivity during travel. However, their use is confounded by motion sickness, caused in-part by the conflict between visually and physically perceived motion. We examine how visual conveyance of motion affects motion sickness during in-car VR.
