This study attempted to further the base of knowledge concerning effects on watching video taken from an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). Sixteen participants from the U.S. Air Force Academy were involved in watching UAV video under 2 conditions of motion (with and without) and 2 conditions of video presentation (laptop computer screen and a head-mounted display). Each video was about 5 minutes long and following each condition the subject filled out a questionnaire which judged their sickness level based on many different factors. Our results did not show any significant difference in sickness levels between the 4 conditions, and further research will have to be performed to fully investigate the effects of watching UAV camera video in an immersive environment.
