Abstract

This paper presents challenges encountered when interacting with 3D environments by means of Virtual Reality devices in a seated position. A use case has been devised and developed to support this work: a fire warden virtual training system. The users interact with the virtual environment with a combination of a Head-Mounted Display and other assisting devices to complement the virtual experience (keyboard, gamepad, leap motion). This work points out the benefits achieved using virtual reality in this environment and it exposes the limitations experimented by humans in such situations. With the knowledge gathered with these experiments this paper proposes interaction techniques to overcome them.
