Abstract: The following paper investigates the effect on the intensity of per- ceived vection by changing the field of view (FOV) using a head- mounted display (HMD) in a virtual environment (VE). For this purpose a study was carried out, where the participants were situ- ated in a vection evoking VE using a HMD. During the experiment, the VE was presented with different FOVs, and a measurement of the felt intensity of vection was performed. The results indicate that a decrease of the FOV invokes a decrease of the intensity of perceived vection.
