Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Advances in virtual reality technologies, including display and camera systems, have gone through a tremendous development in recent years. We can now use them efficiently in a significant number of applications. In remote exploration,
monitoring and intervention tasks, immersive technology can lead to greater comprehension and accuracy of observation, making the decision process faster and more effective. However, the spread of immersive technologies has shown slow take-up, with VR adoption limited to few applications. This appears due to the often-needed change of operating paradigm and some skepticism towards the "VR advantage". There is, therefore, a need to assess the benefits a VR system can bring to decisionmaking within commercial applications and the contribution
immersion brings to user performance. This knowledge will help system designers understand when immersive technologies can be proposed to replace or complement standard display systems.
