Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR PLACEMENT OF VIRTUAL CHARACTERS IN AN AUGMENTED/VIRTUAL REALITY ENVIRONMENT
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE PLACEMENT DE PERSONNAGES VIRTUELS DANS UN ENVIRONNEMENT DE RÉALITÉ AUGMENTÉE/VIRTUELLE
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method for orienting the presentation of a virtual environment with respect to multiple users in a shared virtual space is provided. The multiple users may be physically present in different physical spaces. For each of the multiple users, the system may detect physical constraints associated with the respective physical space, and may determine a longest, unobstructed physical path in the physical space based on an orientation of the user in the physical space and the associated physical constraints. A presentation of the virtual environment to the multiple users in the shared virtual space may then be oriented with respect to each of the multiple users so as to maximize interaction amongst the multiple users in the shared virtual space.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé pour orienter la présentation d'un environnement virtuel par rapport à de multiples utilisateurs dans un espace virtuel partagé. Les multiples utilisateurs peuvent être physiquement présents dans différents espaces physiques. Pour chacun des multiples utilisateurs, le système peut détecter des contraintes physiques associées à l'espace physique respectif, et peut déterminer la plus longue trajectoire physique non obstruée dans l'espace physique sur la base d'une orientation de l'utilisateur dans l'espace physique et des contraintes physiques associées. Une présentation de l'environnement virtuel aux multiples utilisateurs dans l'espace virtuel partagé peut ensuite être orientée par rapport à chacun des multiples utilisateurs de manière à maximiser l'interaction parmi les multiples utilisateurs dans l'espace virtuel partagé.
