Yamaha Motors R&D Sparked a Study of VR-Induced Motion Sickness

LIFESTYLE ON WHEELS | Motorsiklo News –

Yamaha Motors’ motorcycle R&D team together with the researchers at Shizuoka University launched a joint research project in relation to solve motion sickness related concerns. People suffering from symptoms similar to car-induced motion sickness brought about by the extensive usage of virtual reality (VR) equipment have shown significant figures.

The 80 test participants were evaluated for VR sickness over the 20-level Fast Motion Sickness scale.

It was seen today that virtual reality (VR) expands its range of usage and applicability to some degree. Its use from day-to-day life to commerce and industry aid in the wide-spread of viruses that may arise to possible health concerns.

Participating in the joint research project were Masayuki Miki (left) and Tetsuya Kimura (right), both employees in the Technical Research & Development Center’s Fundamental Technology Research Division.

The release of the joint research paper at Shizuoka University will outline a possible approach to solve this issue. Last May 2020 scientific research reports that sounds and vibration may significantly reduce VR sickness.

“Simultaneous presentation of engine sounds and vibration, which were synchronous to each other and tightly coupled with the visual flow speed, effectively reduces [visually induced motion sickness] while experiencing motorcycling simulators.”

Yamaha simulators and VR equipment used on motorcycle riding played an important role in research relating to ride-dynamics and machine-dynamics of riders.

“Yamaha has been using riding simulators built around actual motorcycles for some time and VR allows us to ‘ride’ a wide range of products on all kinds of road environments we’ve created.”

Theories based on the experience of Yamaha led to clear out evidence and substantial solution and have riders with different riding techniques and perceptions participate in the virtual test-rides.
