Abstract

Children with autism are frequently noted for their impairment of lacking facial expression in their social interaction. In this study, it examined how young people with autism understand the expressive 3D humanoid characters with facial expression within the context of a Collaborative Virtual Environment (CVE) technology. The developed 3D facial expressions were designed in the simulated CVE system. An empirical study of 10 people with autism in York and Leeds using the simulated CVE system with 3D facial expressions has been carried out. The findings indicate that the participants were able to recognise and operate the assistive tool of 3D virtual characters with emotions for expressing their feelings via the simulated CVE system; and able to infer other’s emotions. The result was surprisin
