Computational models for ecological perception in virtual and augmented reality


Fabio Solari - University of Genoa


A bio-inspired computational model of visual perception for action tasks is proposed to provide clues to better design virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR) systems. The proposed neural model is based on space-variant mapping, disparity, and optic flow computation by implementing paradigms of the dorsal visual processing stream. The cortical representation of the visual information is directly exploited to infer features related to the real world without devising ad-hoc computer vision algorithms.  Besides artificial vision applications, the proposed model can mimic and describe human behavioral data of both motion and depth perception. By leveraging previous outcomes, we can employ the modeled perception to improve the experience in VR and AR environments: in particular, to implement a foveated depth-of-field blur that mitigates cybersickness.
