Navigation in Immersive Virtual Reality - The Effects of Steering and Jumping Techniques on Spatial Updating (Extended Thesis Abstract)


This thesis describes navigation by jumping, a range-restricted variant of teleportation commonly implemented in modern VR applications. It illustrates the design space of jumping techniques and evaluates them with respect to spatial orientation performance and simulator sickness. The results indicate that jumping is a viable alternative to steering.
