Computer simulation of surgery and scientific experiments help in preparation, training, and assessment. These benefits can be further extended with the integration of robotics for teleoperation and assistance. We describe our efforts to build a realistic and useable simulation for astronaut training and experiment planning. Most of our development focused on user interaction with hand sensors, a necessary component for realism. For the hands, we developed a simulation and focused on aspects of… CONTINUE READING
