Mr. Nakano’s paper has been accepted to TVCG (ISMAR 2021 Journal Track)

Mr. Kizashi Nakano (D2)’s paper has been accepted to the IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG). It was accepted to the Journal Track of the IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR) 2021 and will be presented there. This paper shows that reproducing the downward field of view, which has been overlooked in VR head mounted displays, improves the user’s sense of presence and sense of self-location. It is thought that the visibility of the self-avatar in the downward field of view had a positive effect, and it is expected to be applied to various VR systems. This research was conducted in collaboration with Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University and the University of Tokyo.
