Abstract

Fast playback of First-Person View (FPV) videos reduces watching time but it also increases the perceived intensity of camera trembling and makes transient events, such as collisions, less evident. Here we propose using camera vibrations as vibrotactile feedback to support collision detection in fast video playback. To preserve camera vibrations pitch during fast playback, we use Time-Scale Modification (TSM) methods developed for audio. We show that camera vibrations delivered to the palm of the dominant hand improved collision detection performance in a pilot study. We found that reducing the levels of terrain vibrations is beneficial for collision detection. Furthermore, we found that without vibrotactile feedback participants are likely to underestimate the number of collisions in a video. Our results suggest that vibrotactile feedback has potential to support the detection of transient events during fast playback of FPV videos.
