An Overview of Group Navigation in Multi-User Virtual Reality


Group navigation techniques can allow both collocated and distributed collaborators to explore a shared virtual environment together. In this paper, we review the different facets, the resulting challenges, and previous implementations of group navigation in the literature and derive four broad and non-exclusive topic areas for future research on the subject. Our overarching goal is to underline the importance of optimizing navigation processes for groups and to increase the awareness of group navigation techniques as a relevant solution approach in this regard.
