Virtual prototyping is a major application of a virtual environment within the product development process. this book explores the concepts, tools, interaction, and simulation used with virtual prototypes and environments. The book contains the selected proceedings of two recent conferences: "Virtual Environments and their Applications", held in Coimbra, Portugal, in October 1994, and "Virtual Prototyping", held in Providence, USA, in September 1994. Both conferences were co-organized by the International Federation for Information Processing. Virtual environments have enormous potential for future applications in industry, and this book should be of interest to all those involved in manufacturing, both manufacturers and suppliers. Vendors for hardware and software, and research institutes and universities dealing with engineering, design, computer science and mathematics, will also find the book of interest.
