Abstract

In this paper, we discuss our experimental results on Simulator Sickness (SS). A series of experiments were conducted in our Virtual Reality (VR) Lab. Our aim was to investigate the correlations between the perception of depth and the feeling of discomfort, as well as the role of gameplay regarding the familiarity of the viewer with computer games in the feeling of discomfort. Participants were immersed in two different stereoscopic landscapes projected on a semi-cylindrical screen. The results indicate that participants have felt simulator sickness more intensely in the landscape where they perceived less depth cues. We also observed that participants who often played computer games felt simulator sickness less than others.
