  • An Empiric Evaluation of Confirmation Methods for Optical See-Through Head-Mounted Display Calibration 

    Maier, Patrick; Dey, Arindam; Waechter, Christian A. L.; Sandor, Christian; Tönnis, Marcus; Klinker, Gudrun (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    The calibration of optical see-through head-mounted displays (OSTHMDs) is an important fundament for correct object alignment in augmented reality. Any calibration process for OSTHMDs requires users to align 2D points in ...
  • Trade-Offs Related to Travel Techniques and Level of Display Fidelity in Virtual Data-Analysis Environments 

    Ragan, Eric D.; Wood, Andrew; McMahan, Ryan P.; Bowman, Doug A. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Because effective navigation in 3D virtual environments (VEs) depends on the specifics of the travel techniques and the display system, we compared two travel techniques (steering and target-based) and two display conditions-a ...
  • Comparing Auditory and Haptic Feedback for a Virtual Drilling Task 

    Rausch, Dominik; Aspöck, Lukas; Knott, Thomas; Pelzer, Sönke; Vorländer, Michael; Kuhlen, Torsten (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    While visual feedback is dominant in Virtual Environments, the use of other modalities like haptics and acoustics can enhance believability, immersion, and interaction performance. Haptic feedback is especially helpful for ...
  • 3D User Interfaces Using Tracked Multi-touch Mobile Devices 

    Wilkes, Curtis B.; Tilden, Dan; Bowman, Doug A. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Multi-touch mobile devices are becoming ubiquitous due to the proliferation of smart phone platforms such as the iPhone and Android. Recent research has explored the use of multi-touch input for 3D user interfaces on ...
  • Floor-based Audio-Haptic Virtual Collision Responses 

    Blom, Kristopher J.; Haringer, Matthias; Beckhaus, Steffi (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Virtual collisions are considered an important aspect of creating effective travel interactions for virtual environments; yet, they are not yet well understood. We introduce a new floor based audio-haptic interface for ...
  • Redirected Steering for Virtual Self-Motion Control with a Motorized Electric Wheelchair 

    Fiore, Loren Puchalla; Phillips, Lane; Bruder, Gerd; Interrante, Victoria; Steinicke, Frank (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Redirection techniques have shown great potential for enabling users to travel in large-scale virtual environments while their physical movements have been limited to a much smaller laboratory space. Traditional redirection ...
  • Fast Motion Rendering for Single-Chip Stereo DLP Projectors 

    Lancelle, Marcel; Voß, Gerrit; Fellner, Dieter W. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Single-chip color DLP projectors show the red, green and blue components one after another. When the gaze moves relative to the displayed pixels, color fringes are perceived. In order to reduce these artefacts, many devices ...
  • Networked Displays for VR Applications: Display as a Service 

    Löffler, Alexander; Pica, Luciano; Hoffmann, Hilko; Slusallek, Philipp (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Stereoscopic Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs) in a tiled setup, so-called display walls, are rising as a replacement for the classic projection-based systems for Virtual Reality (VR) applications. They have numerous benefits ...
  • Towards Interacting with Force-Sensitive Thin Deformable Virtual Objects 

    Hummel, Johannes; Wolff, Robin; Dodiya, Janki; Gerndt, Andreas; Kuhlen, Torsten (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    The selection of the right input devices for 3D interaction methods is important for a successful VR system. While natural direct interaction is often preferred, research has shown that indirect interaction can be beneficial. ...
  • Indoor Tracking for Large Area Industrial Mixed Reality 

    Scheer, Fabian; Müller, Stefan (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    For mixed reality (MR) applications the tracking of a video camera in a rapidly changing large environment with several hundred square meters still represents a challenging task. In contrast to an installation in a laboratory, ...
  • Haptic Rendering of Dynamic Image Sequence Using String based Haptic Device SPIDAR 

    Jayasiri, Anusha; Akahane, Katsuhito; Sato, Makoto (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    This paper concerns how to associate haptic signals with a dynamic image sequence or in other words a video to feel the haptic motion. Nowadays, there is a significant evolvement in haptic technologies and they are being ...
  • Modifying an Identified Size of Objects Handled with Two Fingers Using Pseudo-Haptic Effects 

    Ban, Yuki; Narumi, Takuji; Tanikawa, Tomohiro; Hirose, Michitaka (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    In our research, we aim to construct a visuo-haptic system that employs pseudo-haptic effects to provide users with the sensation of touching virtual objects of varying shapes. Thus far, we have proved that it can be ...
