Motion Rate Impact on Virtual Reality Sickness in a Mobile Application Simulating a Roller Coaster (English)
Abstract [en]

As Virtual Reality grows larger as a commercial product for private use, Virtual Reality Sickness emerges as an increasingly common issue. The knowledge about this type of motion sickness has been around for a long time, and there is no shortage of research on the subject, but in many cases it is based on technology that is fundamentally different from today's. This study aimed at investigating the impact of velocity on Virtual Reality Sickness through tests performed in a simulation of a rollercoaster optimized for use with Samsung Gear VR. A quantitative survey was performed where 21 participants tested the simulation at three different velocities on three separate days in which the level of motion sickness was estimated using standardized forms during all test periods. The results indicate a difference between the different velocities ability to induce Virtual Reality Sickness, however, the evidence was not sufficient to prove that this was not due to chance. Analysis, on the other hand, indicates that there is a positive correlation between Virtual Reality Sickness and presence, the feeling of being in a certain environment, though physically being elsewhere.

Abstract [sv]

I takt med att Virtual Reality växer sig större som en kommersiell produkt för privat bruk så träder Virtual Reality Sickness fram som ett allt mer utbrett problem. Vetskapen om denna typ av åksjuka har funnits länge och det råder ingen brist på forskning i ämnet, men i många fall är den byggd på teknik som är fundamentalt annorlunda än dagens. Denna studie ämnade att undersöka rörelsehastighetens påverkan på Virtual Reality Sickness genom tester utförda i en simulering av en berg- och dalbana optimerad för användning med Samsung Gear VR. En kvantitativ undersökning utfördes där 21 deltagare fick testa simuleringen i tre olika hastigheter under tre separata dagar i vilken nivån av åksjuka uppskattades med hjälp av standardiserade formulär under samtliga testtillfällen. Resultaten tyder på en skillnad mellan de olika hastigheternas förmåga att framkalla Virtual Reality Sickness, dock var inte underlagen tillräckliga för att bevisa att detta inte berodde på slumpen. Analys tyder däremot på att det finns en positiv korrelation mellan Virtual Reality Sickness och presence, känslan av att befinna sig i en viss miljö fast att man fysiskt är någon annanstans.
