The technology process we are proposing to Horizon 360 Video Contest is "Human Building Interactions in Immersive Virtual Environments (IVEs)". Buildings consume approximately 43% of the annual energy in United States and in the other developed countries. There is a gap between the measured and actual energy consumption in commercial settings, where occupants are not responsible for the bills of their consumption. One key reason for this gap is the occupant behavior (e.g., their heating/cooling, lighting preferences and their interactions with the heating/cooling remedies and lighting fixtures) in built environments. In order to address this problem, real occupant behavior data need to be collected through controlled experiments designed based on advanced design of experiments principles. IVEs provide enhanced controlled experiment settings and encapsulate the participants by conveying continuous stream of stimuli. IVEs have been used in the experimental studies in other disciplines (e.g., psychology) especially when the humans are in the foreground. Our innovative process proposal enables us to understand and visualize the occupant behavior in (commercial) built environments through their interactions with the IVE office spaces. Our technology process includes IVEs, as well as the hybrid physical and virtual environments when thermal stimuli and multimodal sensory stimuli (i.e., co-presence of thermal and visual stimuli) are in the foreground (i.e., thermal stimuli is conveyed in the physical environment in response to the interactions taking place in the virtual environments). We believe, our technology process provides a game-changing venue in empirical studies in human-built environments interactions context, and in the AEC industry.
