Acknowledgements This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 860410.  ...  A pedestrian decides to cross not only by watching the traffic but also by observing what other pedestrians are doing. All vehicles will stop if a group of pedestrians cross the road.  ...  For the time being, this technology will be used for some special applications and users such as firefighters, police, or maybe rescue personnel. A designed-for-all approach will take a long time.  ...

2018 Journal of Central Nervous System Disease  
The results from this review provide support for the use of VR as part of a neurorehabilitation program in maximizing recovery.  ...  The keywords used in the search were "neurorehabilitation" AND "Virtual Reality" AND "devices." We summarize the literature which highlights that a range of effective VR approaches are available.  ...  We therefore consider that the factors that can influence user experience should be carefully observed when designing games.  ...
