6DOF-Nav Dataset

Welcome to the Website of the 6DoF VR User Navigation Dataset

The point cloud representation has emerged as a popular format for volumetric photorealistic reconstructions of dynamic real world objects, due to its simplicity and versatility. This representation has been used to facillitate a variety of immersive virtual reality experiences including remote communication.

Participants viewing dynamic point cloud sequences in VR

In this work, we present user navigation data, obtained through a subjective study in 6 degrees of freedom with 26 participants. Participants were shown looped 10 second sequences of dynamic point clouds and were asked to inspect the content as part of a quality evaluation task. The variation in movements and interaction behaviour among users indicate that user-centered adaptive delivery could lead to sensible gains in terms of perceived quality. This dataset is made available here for future research.
