HUMAN-SCALE VIRTUAL REALITY CATCHING ROBOT SIMULATION

Ludovic Hamon, François-Xavier Inglese, Paul Richard

Abstract

This paper presents a human-scale virtual reality catching robot simulation. The virtual robot catches a ball that users throw in its workspace. User interacts with the virtual robot using a large-scale bimanual haptic interface. This interface is used to track user’s hands movements and to display weight and inertia of the virtual balls. Stereoscopic viewing, haptic and auditory feedbacks are provided to improve user’s immersion and simulation realisms.
