Abstract

Unlike conventional desktop simulations which have constrained interaction, immersive Virtual Reality (VR) allows users to freely move and interact with objects. In this paper we discuss a work-in-progress system that 'virtually' records participants movement and actions within a simulation. This system recovers and rebuilds recorded data on request, accurately replaying individual participants motions and actions in the simulation. Observers can review this reconstruction using an unrestricted virtual camera and if necessary, observe changes from recorded input devices. Reconstruction of each participants' skeleton structure was created using tracked input devices. We conclude that our system offers detailed recreation of high-level knowledge and visual information of participant actions during simulations.
