Head Mounted Displays

£24.99

Product description

Gain a solid understanding of the optical, imaging, anthropometric, and safety features of head-mounted displays. Expert contributors show you how to link user performance to critical system parameters. . .fit HMD devices to a diverse range of head shapes and sizes. . .asses the limits of head-supported weight and size. . .present high-quality imagery. . .prevent eye strain and fatigue with well-aligned imagery. . .use the correct model for presenting stereoscopic imagery. . .and more. HMD visual displays, image alignment, head and neck strain and brain-actuated control are explored in depth. Create optimum HMDs for the 21st century! You have found the first guide to head-mounted displays (HMDs) that places the emphasis where it belongs--on the end-user. This volume addresses key disciplines for future head-mounted virtual reality (VR), industrial and military display systems. It gives you a solid understanding of factors critical to end-user acceptance: user-centered design, imaging and optics, anthropometry, safety, human factors, visual perception, and system testing. Expert contributors focus on end-user needs to help you meet the toughest challenges of designing HMDs. They show you how to: Lind human task performance to HMD system properties; Make the right design trade-offs to optimize human performance; Present high-quality, well-aligned imagery; Accomodate a diverse range of head shapes and sizes; Assess limits for head-supported weight and size; Use correct models to present stereoscopic imagery; Test HMDs for utility and user acceptance. HMD visual displays, image alignment, head and neck strain, and brain-actuated control are explored indepth. You also have access to a superb categorization of HMD optical design, and a state-of-the-art model for stereoscopic viewing. From basic optical parameters to supporting HMDs with head-tracking data, this guide covers the important aspects of designing cutting-edge HMDs for the designer, user, and buyer of next-generation devices and systems. This book is a collection of chapters on the design of head-mounted displays (HMDs). HMDs are electro-optical devices worn on the head that present the user with video or graphical imagery. Applications for HMDs include flight symbology for the military pilot, immersive virtual reality entertainment, personal viewing of videos, scientific visualization and endoscopic surgery. HMD design challenges involve fitting these devices to a diverse range of head shapes and sizes, minimizing head-supported weight and size, presenting imagery with adequate quality and maintaining critical binocular alignment. Each chapter is authorized by an expert in their particular field. Topics include system trade-offs, human factors, visual perception, physiological responses, optical design, biomechanics, anthropometry, brain-actuated control and testing. We conclude the book with a chapter dedicated to specifying and selecting an HMD, followed by a glossary of HMD terminology.
