Abstract
A person experiences illusions of self motion (vection) and disorientation when viewing a large moving display. Rotation of the visual scene around a vertical axis induces circularvection, as well as sensations of body tilt. The experiments described in this report were designed to reinvestigate several assumed properties of vection. The aim is to provide answers to questions about the way in which humans orient themselves in a moving environment.
