Functional Specifications for Tele-Immersive Product Evaluation Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract A novel virtual tele-immersive product evaluation environment is conceived. The components include a robust Virtual Reality (VR) hardware system, associated VR driving software, development tool for the tele-immersive virtual environment, networking software, user representation scheme and tools for developing 3D models and incorporating dynamic properties into the models. We have developed a model to allow users to collaboratively evaluate products using the CAVE, Performer, CAVERN, CAVEActors, Pro/ENGINEER, and ADAMS software libraries.
