Implementation and Evaluation of a High-presence Interior Layout Simulation System using Mixed Reality
With the recent development of information and communications technology, the furniture sales and interior design fields have begun adopting various simulation systems based on virtual and augmented reality. Here we implement and evaluate a high-presence interior layout simulation system. Using mixed reality technology, the system arranges three-dimensional (3D) objects such as virtual furniture and home appliances in real space, without the visual discomfort caused by occlusion discrepancies between the virtual objects and real space. Accordingly, users can easily simulate home interiors by arranging 3D objects in their own living rooms or bedrooms. To test the effectiveness of the interior layout simulation system, we surveyed 22 university students who rated the presence, operability, functionality, and effectiveness of the system. The subjects’ responses were overwhelmingly positive for all five measures.
