15 Years of Research on Redirected Walking in Immersive Virtual Environments

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Virtual reality users wearing head-mounted displays can experience the illusion of walking in any direction for infinite distance while, in reality, they are walking a curvilinear path in physical space. This is accomplished by introducing unnoticeable rotations to the virtual environment—a technique called redirected walking. This
paper gives an overview of the research that has been performed since redirected walking was first practically demonstrated 15 years ago.
