    Abstract
    Daylighting plays an eminent role in the performance of indoor environments and their occupants, thus necessitating the need to investigate daylight perception of potential occupants at early design stages. The present study introduces an interactive approach to collect and visualize brightness perception of daylighting in a large-scale immersive virtual environment, using a game engine as a daylight simulation tool. The developed system allows users to explore building models freely at different day times set in virtual reality and report their perceptions in real time. Following...
