This simulator allows an immersion in a realistic urban virtual environment. The participant can navigate within the virtual world in which moving pedestrians and cars, as well as static objects, can be incorporated. Thanks to eye-tracking and head-tracking measurements, visual field deficiencies such as those produced by Age related Macular Degeneration (AMD) can be simulated in real-time to the participant. The low vision simulator can be used for virtual prototyping of products geared towards visually impaired people and for visual impairment awareness.
