Title: Perception in Immersive Virtual Reality Environments
State-of-the-art virtual environment systems offer new flexibility in the design of experiments for active perception. Conversely, perceptual human factors issues are key to successful virtual environments. I will briefly discuss how human visually-guided behaviour can be studied with virtual reality tools as well as important human factors issues, caveats and limitations in the use of virtual reality methodology. I will also discuss recent experiments that we have been conducting to study human behaviour using multimodal immersive virtual environments.
