— Knowledge of the propagation media is a key step toward a successful transceiver design. Such information is typically gathered by conducting physical experiments, measuring and processing the corresponding data to obtain channel characteristics. In case of medical implants, this could be extremely difficult, if not impossible. In this paper, an immersive… (More)
Information regarding the propagation media is typically gathered by conducting physical experiments, measuring and processing the corresponding data to obtain channel characteristics. When this propagation media is human body, for example in case of medical implants, then this approach might not be practical. In this paper, an im-mersive visualization… (More)
This paper describes a set of tools for performing measurements of objects in a virtual reality based immersive visualization environment. These tools enable the use of the immersive environment as an instrument for extracting quantitative information from data representations that hitherto had be used solely for qualitative examination. We provide, within… (More)
We describe a method for calibrating an electromagnetic motion tracking device. Algorithms for correcting both location and orientation data are presented. In particular we use a method for interpolating rotation corrections that has not previously been used in this context. This method, unlike previous methods, is rooted in the geometry of the space of… (More)
We present methods for measuring errors in the rendering of three-dimensional points, line segments, and polygons in pixel-based computer graphics systems. We present error metrics for each of these three cases. These methods are applied to rendering with OpenGL on two common hardware platforms under several rendering conditions. Results are presented and… (More)
In order to move away from the current prescriptive design methods towards performance based methods for the design of structures under fire, we need validated computer models. The next section describes our approach for modeling and analysis.
