Virtual reality (VR) has became now a concept known and is recognised as the man-machine communication interface of the future. However, in this field there are still much problems to discuss and to solve. One of the main requirements of the most VR based applications is to enable the users to achieve navigation task within virtual environments (VE). We review the actual means manners spreaded to achieve this task, we then propose a navigation control algorithm based on human head-behavior while exploring intuitively the real world. This algorithm can be applied to many applications with some accommodations. This paper presents the approach, the methods and discusses the advantages and the lack of this kind of control applied to some fields, namely, robotics, modeling and medical
