Development of a low-cost multimodal VR system for engineering design (2017)
Conference Proceeding
Roper, T., Lawson, G., & Abdullah, C. (2017). Development of a low-cost multimodal VR system for engineering design. In Proceedings of the 2016 ACM Conference Companion Publication on Designing Interactive Systems - DIS '17 Companiondoi:10.1145/3064857.3079177

Virtual Reality technologies are available at a lower cost than ever before. However, such systems are developed mainly for the consumer market, and inaccuracies in spatial judgements may make them unsuitable for specific applications like Engineerin... Read More

Multimodal “sensory illusions” for improving spatial awareness in virtual environments (2016)
Conference Proceeding
Lawson, G., Roper, T., & Abdullah, C. (in press). Multimodal “sensory illusions” for improving spatial awareness in virtual environments

Inaccurate judgement of distances in virtual environments (VEs) restricts their usefulness for engineering development, in which engineers must have a good understanding of the spaces they are designing. Multimodal feedback can improve depth percept... Read More
