Access from EThOS:
The advances in Virtual Environments (VE) technology have further enhanced the capabilities of digital models, allowing teams of engineers to analyse designs interactively to ensure the ease of maintenance. If a VE interface is required to satisfy engineers' realistic needs, the interaction techniques must be carried out with a satisfactory level of naturalness and directness. Realistic direct manipulation within VE in this thesis implies that the users are able to use their own hands to directly interact upon the 3D virtual objects to perform bimanual operations (in both symmetric and asymmetric scenario). In this thesis, CAVE-based VE was chosen as the environment for the users to interact with the advanced stereoscopic 3D images of virtual objects.
