Uno, S; Slater, M; (1997) The sensitivity of presence to collision response. In: Proceedings: IEEE 1997 Virtual Reality Annual International Symposium: March 1 - 5, 1997: Albuquerque, New Mexico. (pp. 95 - 103). IEEE Computer Society Press: Los Alamitos, US.

The paper describes an approach to collision detection and response, and an experiment to examine the sensitivity of subjective presence to varying collision response parameters. In particular, a bowling game scenario was used with 18 subjects, and parameters representing elasticity, friction and accuracy of collision detection were varied. Presence was assessed through a questionnaire following the experiment. The results suggested that presence was sensitive to variation in these parameters, and in particular to the value of the parameter representing friction.
