Redirected Walking


For my dissertation I decided to work on a novice yet promising locomotion system for VR called redirected walking (RW). Mixing RW techniques with rotational and translation gains it's possible to redirect the walking path of a user inside of a limited room space while making him/her think they have walked straight. As part of my dissertation I have built a software capable of creating a virtual path and then simulate how applying different RW algorithms can make a user move inside of a room.
