Designing Virtual Reality Systems: The Structured Approach by Gerard Kim

By Gerard Kim

Constructing and holding a VR approach is a truly tough job, requiring in-depth wisdom in lots of disciplines. the trouble lies within the complexity of getting to at the same time contemplate many process ambitions, a few of that are conflicting. This ebook is prepared in order that it follows a spiral improvement strategy for every degree, describing the matter and attainable strategies for every level. even more hands-on than different introductory books, concrete examples and functional options to the technical demanding situations in construction a VR process are supplied. half 1 covers the very fundamentals in construction a VR system and explains quite a few technical matters in item modeling and scene association. half 2 bargains with 3D multimodal interplay, designing for usable and ordinary interplay and growing real looking item simulation. essentially written for first point graduates, complicated undergraduates and IT execs also will locate this a priceless advisor.

Thus, to conveniently specify the orienting operation without confusion, one often uses the convention called the Fixed axis angles. Fixed axis angles are a set of three angles, a, b, and g. ’’ Similarly to the translation, the rotation process can be modeled as applying a mathematical operator (see below). R XNew ¼ FixedAxis_Rot(R XOld , R axis_set, a, b, g) where R axis_set denotes the three axes of the (reference) coordinate system R (sometimes, the axis order might be explicitly specified).

In such a case, two coordinate systems form a parent (reference)–child relationship. Cascaded parent–child relationships among objects (or equivalently their coordinate systems) can be formed, with the ultimate parent being the ‘‘World’’ coordinate system (we come back to this issue later). , World) coordinate system, the object’s location can be specified by stating how to place the object coordinate system origin at the desired location with respect to the reference coordinate system. Initially, the object (or equivalently its local coordinate system) is assumed to be at, and aligned with, its parent coordinate system.

The simulation loop can be split up into individual threads or processes that communicate with each other for synchronization purposes, for instance, sensor thread, application/ simulation thread, and rendering thread. , for stereo or for multisided display systems). In such a case, care must be taken to synchronize all the graphics hardware. In particular, for active stereo systems where it is important that at one moment all the graphics hardware output images for the left eye and vice versa, the hardware ‘‘GenLock’’ signal is used to synchronize the output scan time of all the graphics hardware.
