Effective Communication in Virtual Reality


Virtual reality (VR) allows deception to be used as a computer mediated communication strategy to gain trust of others. In addition, effective communication in a virtual environment relies on the ability to detect deception in avatar representations and behaviour. Most of the research that has been done has focused on traditional video, audio, our text based communication. This leave opportunities to examine virtual reality representations. A virtual reality simulation has the potential to fill this gap, investigating how humans perceive facial gestures of a virtual avatar when mediated through virtual world representation.
