Virtuelles Navigieren im Raum

Navigation in Virtual Reality. 

This setup was constructed and bulid by the Graphics and Geometry Group headed by Prof. Mario Botsch at Bielefeld University


This is a circular treadmill for studying navigation, locomotion and spatial orientation. The treadmill is equipped with a motorized handlebar to guide people at differnet walking speeds independent of the speed of the treadmill. The base for that treadmill is an historic piece of science equipment inherited from Horst von Mittlestädt, who legendly did some of his original studies on the "efference copy" on that piece of equipment.
