Chatten Associates will be presenting "Development of a dichoptic foveal/peripheral head-mounted display with partial binocular overlap" at SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing 2011 (Orlando World Center Marriott, Orlando, FL). This paper covers our dichoptic vision system (DiVS) project, funded under Air Force SBIR FA8650-10-M-6068.
If you are attending SPIE, please make plans to stop by.

Time: 2:20 PM - 2:40 PM
Room: Crystal B
Conference: Head- and Helmet-Mounted Displays XVI: Design and Applications (Conference 8041)

Due to the limited pixel counts available from current camera and HMD technologies, today's head-mounted electronic vision systems are incapable of simultaneously providing both a wide field of view and near-natural visual acuity. A practical alternative may be possible in the form of a dichoptic foveal/peripheral vision system, wherein one eye is presented with very high-resolution imagery over a narrow angle, while the other receives a much wider, but lower-resolution, peripheral view. In this paper, we describe a preliminary dichoptic foveal/peripheral binocular vision system and suggest methods by which its usability and performance can be assessed.
