Abstract

The effect of overlapping dynamic visual noise on visually induced self-motion perception (vection) by upward or downward optical flow was tested. The dynamic visual noise consisted of rapidly refreshed sparse random dots. Binocular disparity of the overlapping noise plane was varied. The results showed that when the noise was presented on the flow plane or on a plane farther than the flow plane, vection was totally impaired. This demonstrates that dynamic visual noise is functionally equivalent to static patterns in the vection suppression effect. A possibility of dynamic visual noise as a vection suppressor in an application on a 3-D display is discussed in relation to simulator sickness.
