This work describes our efforts in creating a general object interaction framework for dynamic collaborative virtual environments. Furthermore, we increase the realism of the interactive world by using a rigid body simulator to calculate all actor and object movements. The main idea behind our interactive platform is to construct a virtual world using only objects that contain their own interaction information. As a result, the object interactions are application independent and only a single… Expand
An Improved Object Interaction Framework for Dynamic Collaborative Virtual Environments
TLDR
This paper creates a general object interaction framework for dynamic interaction in physically realistic collaborative virtual environments and uses Newton Game Dynamics, a rigid body simulator that is open-source, to increase the interaction possibilities and on-the-fly creation of new interactions.

Bringing haptics and physical simulation together: haptic travel through physical worlds
TLDR
This work shows how it coupled stable haptic rendering to physical simulation in order to achieve this and generated a force feedback field, based on the user's input in combination with collision information provided by a rigid body simulator, to provide the user with useful information on what is happening to its virtual representation. Expand
Virtual humanoids and presence in virtual environments
TLDR
The central conclusion of the work can be summed up as the fact that virtual humanoids are beneficial for a number of interaction scenarios typically found in virtual environments. Expand
Design and Implementation of a Web-Based Collaborative Authoring Tool for the Virtual Reality
TLDR
A multi-user collaboration platform for the web browser adaptable to a wide variety of cases and purposes and which allows multiple and dissimilar stakeholders to create and manipulate virtual spaces in collaboration, either recreate real-world scenes or construct new digital environments using their imagination.

Haptic Puppetry for Interactive Games
TLDR
This paper proposes the traditional marionette control as natural interfaces to control the characters, and explains how to implement a virtual marionettes based on physically-based modelling and haptic paradigm that can rapidly but easily create sophisticated motions for a high-DOF articulated character. Expand
Learning to interact: connecting perception with action in virtual environments
TLDR
A conceptual framework is proposed that allows the agents to identify possible interactions with objects based in past experiences with other objects and also proposes that such acquired knowledge may be used by the agent in order to satisfy its needs and goals by interacting with objects. Expand
Evaluating the Effects of Haptics on Presence while Traveling in a Desktop Virtual Environment
TLDR
While the results indicate that haptics has a positive influence on participant’s perceived presence and performance, his total workload remains constant, it is shown that these findings apply to both experienced and unexperienced virtual environment users. Expand
A Multi-resolution Mesh Representation for Deformable Objects in Collaborative Virtual Environments
TLDR
The proposed method introduces an architecture that distributes the computational load of physical simulation between each participant, and designed and implemented a re-meshing algorithm that converts irregularly triangulated genus zero surfaces into a uniform triangular mesh with regular connectivity.

Real-time deformable objects for collaborative virtual environments
TLDR
The proposed method introduces an architecture that distributes the computational load of physical simulation between clients, and designed and implemented an algorithm that converts irregularly triangulated genus zero surfaces into a uniform triangular mesh with regular connectivity. Expand
RECOLLVE - REpresenting COLLaboration in Virtual Environments
TLDR
This article proposes RECOLLVE, a CVE agent-based which focuses on representing in the virtual scene a very large set of collaboration activities, including their social aspects, which will satisfy the specific needs of users. Expand
