A virtual reality laboratory was developed in which head-mounted displays (HMDs) are instrumented with infrared video-based eyetrackers to monitor subjects' eye movements while they perform a range of complex tasks. A go-kart mounted on a 6DOF motion platform provides kinesthetic feedback to subjects as they drive through a virtual town. A dual-haptic interface allows free motion and realistic force-feedback within a 1 m3 volume.
