Abstract:

RedirectedWalking (RDW) received increasing attention during the last decade. While exploring large-scale virtual environments (VEs) by means of real walking, RDWtechniques allow to explore VEs, that are significantly larger than the required physical space. This is accomplished by applying discrepancies between the real and the physical movements. This paper focuses on the development of an experiment to identify detection thresholds for an acoustic RDW system by means of
a wave field synthesis (WFS) system. The implementation of an automated test procedure is described.
