The aim of this applied research project is to enhance the sense of presence for users in Virtual Reality (VR) environments using advanced body trackers. The current solutions have limitations due to the high latency, which results in low accuracy in the VR resulting environment. The project goal is to achieve low latency and smoothly animate the avatar's movements. Using a VR headset and body trackers, the project records movements and evaluate latency using a measurement tool. The research focuses on finding a solution to decrease the latency delay and improves the user's sense of presence in the VR environment. Ultimately, this project aims to create a more immersive and realistic VR experience for users.
