Overview Edit

Despite widespread interest in virtual reality, research and development efforts in synthetic environments (SE) — the field encompassing virtual environments, teleoperation, and hybrids — have remained fragmented.

This book is the first integrated treatment of the topic, presenting current knowledge along with thought-provoking vignettes about a future where SE is commonplace.

This volume discusses all aspects of creating a system that will allow human operators to see, hear, smell, taste, move about, give commands, respond to conditions, and manipulate objects effectively in a real or virtual environment.

It also offers recommendations for development of improved SE technology, needed studies of human behavior and evaluation of SE systems, and government policy and infrastructure.
