  1. 1. Investigating the use of radiative heat panels to enhance perceived threat of fire in VR

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Anton Blomander; [2020]
    Keywords : Virtual reality; Fire safety; Radiative heat; Human behavior; Head mounted displays; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The purpose of this report was to develop and evaluate new solutions to improve the perception of fire threat in virtual reality experiments. Thermal heat have been identified as a stimulus that modern day virtual reality experiments don’t take into account that would likely affect a person in a real life fire evacuation scenario.
