Adaptive High Resolution
The U.S. military relies heavily on immersive simulations to train pilots and other war fighters. However, it is not currently possible to display immersive environments in a manner that represents a real world scene viewed with 20/20 eyesight. The effect is that pilots train as if they have less than 20/20 eyesight. Cybernet is leveraging our previous work in helmet mounted display (HMD) design, eye tracking, and small robotic systems to develop an HMD that provides very high resolution imagery at the point where the fovea is focused and lower resolution imagery throughout the rest of the scene. Typical HMDs operate at less than 20/20 resolution. Cybernet's concept cost effectively provides 20/20 resolution within the user's fovea, which will greatly improves training realism.
