  • Patent number: 10825255
    Abstract: A VR system for vehicles that may implement methods that address problems with vehicles in motion that may result in motion sickness for passengers. The VR system may provide augmented or virtual views that match visual cues with the physical motions that a passenger experiences. The VR system may project virtual content so that the content appears as a distant object stabilized or fixed in the external environment. The VR system may aid in productivity, as passengers may perform work while riding in the vehicle without experiencing motion sickness. In addition, the VR system may provide enhanced virtual experiences to passengers in moving vehicles by matching accelerations and motions of the vehicle to accelerations and motions in the virtual experiences.

  • Publication number: 20200258311
    Abstract: A VR system for vehicles that may implement methods that address problems with vehicles in motion that may result in motion sickness for passengers. The VR system may provide virtual views that match visual cues with the physical motions that a passenger experiences. The VR system may provide immersive VR experiences by replacing the view of the real world with virtual environments. Active vehicle systems and/or vehicle control systems may be integrated with the VR system to provide physical effects with the virtual experiences. The virtual environments may be altered to accommodate a passenger upon determining that the passenger is prone to or is exhibiting signs of motion sickness.

  • Patent number: 7592997
    Abstract: The invention relates to a system for determining the position of a user and/or a moving device by means of tracking methods, in particular for augmented reality applications, with an interface (9) to integrate at least one sensor type and/or data generator (1, 2, 3, 4) of a tracking method, a configuration unit (20) to describe communication between the tracking methods and/or tracking algorithms and at least one processing unit (5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 16) to calculate the position of the user and/or the moving device based on the data supplied by the tracking methods and/or tracking algorithms.
