Student working on a research project.

Software Interface Between Virtual Reality Headset And Virtual Environment

This project entails designing a software interface that transports a treadmill runner to a virtual environment, via headset. Utilizing measurements of the position and orientation of the headset, and measurements of the treadmill speed, the software should project into the headset a virtual environment consistent with the measured kinematic data: convincing the runner they are navigating a virtual environment.
