Guiding Visual Attention in Immersive Environments

Guiding Visual Attention in Immersive Environments

Growing popularity of virtual reality (VR) technology, to present content virtually all around a user, creates new challenges for digital content creators and presentation systems.

In this dissertation, we investigate how to support viewers to not miss important information when exploring unknown virtual environments. We examine different visual stimuli to guide viewers' attention towards predetermined target regions in their surrounding. To best preserve the original visual appearance of scenes, we aim for subtle visual modifications that operate as close as possible to viewers' perception threshold, while still providing effective guidance.
