Redirected Walking (RDW) is a collection of virtual reality (VR) locomotion tech- niques for immersive virtual environments (IVE) that enables humans to walk on paths in the real world, which may vary from the paths they perceive in the virtual environment (VE). RDW can be implemented by manipulations applied to the dis- played scene, usually by using redirection gains, which force the user to compensate by repositioning and/or reorienting themselves in order to maintain their intended walking direction in the VE. Within certain detection thresholds such manipulations cannot be noticed by the user.
