ICT lab researcher Yashas Joshi will be presenting our work ” Dynamic Foveated Rendering for Redirected Walking in Virtual Reality” as a poster at SIGGRAPH 2020. The work was co-authored by Yashas Joshi and Charalambos Poullis.
We present a novel redirected walking technique for virtual reality leveraging dynamic foveated rendering and a psychological phenomenon of inattentional blindness. Extensive testing with three user-studies showed that the technique can handle long straight-walks in the virtual environment (maximum recorded = 103.9m, in 4×4 sq.m. physical-space) and works in real-time.
