Title
(EN) AUDIO INDICATORS OF USER ATTENTION IN AR/VR ENVIRONMENT
(FR) INDICATEURS AUDIOS D'ATTENTION D'UTILISATEUR DANS UN ENVIRONNEMENT DE RA/RV
Abstract
(EN)
A method of notifying a user about attention from another user in an augmented reality / virtual reality (AR/VR) system is provided. The method includes displaying a first image on a first electronic display to a first user of the AR/VR system and, upon detecting a gaze of the first user at a second user of the AR/VR system or the second user's avatar in the first image, notifying the second user about the gaze of the first user by changing a parameter of an audio communication channel from the first user to the second user, so as to make the first user more audible to the second user.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé de notification à un utilisateur de l'attention d'un autre utilisateur dans un système de réalité augmentée/réalité virtuelle (RA/RV). Le procédé consiste à afficher une première image sur un premier affichage électronique à un premier utilisateur du système de RA/RV et, lors de la détection d'un regard du premier utilisateur vers un deuxième utilisateur du système de RA/RV ou de l'avatar du deuxième utilisateur dans la première image, notifier au deuxième utilisateur le regard du premier utilisateur en changeant un paramètre d'un canal de communication audio du premier utilisateur vers le deuxième utilisateur, de façon à rendre le premier utilisateur plus audible pour le deuxième utilisateur.
