Title:

    The 'detection, perception and object-presence' framework: a unified structure for investigating illusory representations of reality

Abstract:


    An illusory representation of reality is percieved to actually be the object or environment that it depicts. For example, Augmented Reality creates the illusion that a computer-generated object is a real object that exists in a person’s environment. Conversely, Virtual Reality aims to ‘immerse’ the user and make them perceive, to some degree, to be in the virtual environment. Furthermore, the object that a representation depicts may actually  be another form of representation. For example, a computer- generated image could create the illusion of being a photograph.  This paper proposes a unified framework for assessing the success of illusory representations of reality; namely the ‘Detection, Perception, Object-Presence framework’.
