Abstract
This paper proposes a novel foot-pad omni-directional locomotion interface, establishes planar walking algorithm for it in detail. The proposed locomotion interface allows users walking omni-directionally in a virtual environment, which can improve users’ immersion characteristic significantly. The established walking algorithm explains the relation between the motion of foot-pads and the position of ankles, during walking straight or turning. At last, draw a criteria which can be used to decide walking straight or turning.
