DOI: 10.3389/fnhum.2017.00242

[…] real-time visual feedback of hand motion displayed as vr rendered hand models actuated by kinematic data streaming from data gloves worn on each hand (figure ). the vr setup was developed with virtools (dassault systems) and a vrpack plugin that communicates with an open source vr peripheral network interfaced with a fiber-optic data glove (5dt-16mri) measuring 14 finger joint angles […]

[…] because the majority of individuals with low vision are also old and it is known that this population has balance problems and a higher risk to fall [–]., virtual content development platform 3dvia virtools (dassault systems) was used to build 3d models of the street intersections and the dynamic elements such as cars and pedestrians. four real street intersections around the university […]

[…] urban one inspired by buildings in paris, france. it was created using original software (editomem and simulamem) developed by the memory and cognition laboratory of paris descartes university with virtools dev 4.0 (see also [–]). participants had to navigate in the environment while driving a virtual car (see ) using a real steering wheel and gas/brake pedals. the vr sessions took place […]

[…] to 11 cm in 0.5 s; and (4) the recovery (re) phase, in which the platform recovered from the end-point (the pu phase) back to the start-point (the st phase) within 15 s (; ). the vr-based scenery (virtools dev 4.0) represented an individual’s view while riding on a passenger bus and had the platform moved in synchrony, which provided the directive interaction between environment and body […]

[…] second session (light), the motion was combined with a congruent visual stimulus (i.e., a visual scene rotating with equal intensity as the motion stimulus and opposite direction). visual stimuli (virtools, 3dvia) were projected on the white, curved inner surface of the cabin (fov 160° × 90°), and consisted of a horizontal ground plane formed by random dots. therefore, the stimulus provided […]
