Abstract: A Virtual Reality (VR)-based treadmill interface is developed for practicing turning skills in a linear treadmill. The interface incorporates self-paced speed control of treadmill and view angle control of virtual environment. The self-paced speed control allows users to voluntarily change walking speed so that they can reduce walking speed in a natural way near the corner of virtual corridors and increase walking speed while walking through straight virtual corridors. Based on the turning biomechanics in the…
