|1. (US20180256115) MITIGATION OF HEAD-MOUNTED-DISPLAY IMPACT VIA BIOMETRIC SENSORS AND LANGUAGE PROCESSING|
|Applicants:||Sony Interactive Entertainment LLC
|Title:||MITIGATION OF HEAD-MOUNTED-DISPLAY IMPACT VIA BIOMETRIC SENSORS AND LANGUAGE PROCESSING|
Users of head-mounted displays (HMDs) often experience nausea and other symptoms often referred to a “virtual reality sickness.” Various health and biometric sensors are employed to gather baseline sensor measurements. The HMD or a device associated with it can then generate a range or threshold such that any future sensor measurements that fall outside of the range or cross the threshold suggest a health concern for the user of the HMD. The HMD can also be coupled to a microphone, and natural language processing (NLP) is employed to detect negative words or noises made by the user that could also suggest a health concern for the user. After detecting the health concern, the HMD can warn its user, can shut off certain functions, can communicate with an external device, or can trigger an alarm.
