Acrophobia is a scientific term used to describe the fear of height. To some, this fear is tolerable, but to other, the fear could pose danger to their life if the fear is starting to interfere with their day to day activities. The conventional treatment for acrophobia is usually done

Examining factors of walking disutility for microscopic pedestrian model A virtual reality approach
free download

Understanding mechanisms of microscopic pedestrian behaviour is important for pedestrian simulation, which is a useful tool for the design of pedestrian infrastructure. Interest in understanding pedestrian walking behaviour is also increasing in the mechanical

Immersed in software structures: A virtual reality approach
free download

Program code has been inherently challenging to visualize due to its abstract nature. With the advent of affordable virtual reality (VR) hardware products, the use of VR has become a feasible option for software tools. In this paper, we describe a VR approach for visualizing

Virtual reality in education: A theoretical approach for road safety training to students
free download

English The unsystematic way Road Safety is taught in Greeces primary schools led us to reassess the teaching framework of the subject, examining ways in which Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) might provide solutions that are more efficient. Among the various technologies

Integrating Knowledge from Virtual Reality Environments to Learning Scenario Models-A Meta-modeling Approach .
free download

This paper focuses on learning scenario modeling for Virtual Reality Learning Environments (VRLE). Learning scenario models used in computer-supported learning environments are usually not able to describe educational activities implying interaction of learners with a

Pragmatic approach to apply virtual reality technology in accelerating a product life cycle

Today, industries are facing tremendous pressures from the global economy, the increase of customer expectations and demands, and the exponential increase of product complexities, to name a few. To survive in the competitive market, the industries need to develop

Virtual reality and neuropsychology: a cognitive rehabilitation approach for people with psychiatric disabilities
free download

This pilot-study evaluated the feasibility of a 9 month Cognitive Rehabilitation Program using Virtual Reality and the Integrated Psychological Therapy (IPT) to improve cognitive functioning in people with schizophrenia. In order to assess the program it was applied (pre

A theoretical approach of the design and evaluation of a virtual reality device
free download

The majority of virtual reality researches mainly tackle the problems of modeling and digitalization of the virtual world. On interfacing man and the virtual world, few studies analyze theoretically these problems, with introduction of new concepts and new methods

The just vr tool: An innovative approach to training personnel for emergency situations using virtual reality techniques
free download

Objective: To develop a virtual reality (VR) tool to aid personnel in dealing with real medical emergencies. The tool is designed to help trainees improve their knowledge and skills in dealing with health emergency situations, and particularly to help them overcome their

Another approach for fuzzy naive bayes applied on online training assessment in virtual reality simulators
free download

Training systems based on virtual reality are used in several areas of human activities. The user is immersed into a virtual world to have realistic training and realistic interactions with that world. In some kinds of training it is important to know the users skills. An online

An integrated approach to archaeology: from the fieldwork to virtual reality systems
free download

Since 1999 the CNR ITABC (Institute of Technologies Applied to Cultural Heritage) with its Virtual Heritage Lab (VHLab) is involved in the research of an integrated methodology to acquire, elaborate and visualize archaeological landscape, through virtual reality systems

A new approach : using virtual reality psychotherapy in panic disorder with agoraphobia
free download

As listed in the DSM-IV-TR, the essential features of panic disorder are the presence of recurrent, unexpected Panic Attacks, followed by at least 1 month of persistent concern or a significant behavioral change related to the attacks(American Psychiatric Association

Virtual Reality approach for nanoparticles tracking using simulated forces
free download

In this paper we propose a Virtual Reality (VR) approach to track the nanoparticle movement using simulated forces. As a first step in this direction we have considered the representation of the interaction between nanoparticles and Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) tip. This
