Virtual reality has been a major influence in the development of information organization and management. Furthermore, it has also changed the process of designing information systems to make them more suitable for required applications. This book covers a wide range of applications of virtual reality and developments occurring in this field. The book discusses the applications of virtual reality in varied fields such as robot technology, industry and construction, and multimedia technology. This book will be beneficial for readers interested in learning more about the field of virtual reality.
The author claims that, in our progress, in a techno-logos driven linear and literal way of dealing with reality, we are moving from a macro-cosmic sense of the reality of being to a microscopic knowledge of truth. In the "mythic" vision of reality, the ground is naturally spiritual, but in the "un-reality" that we now approach, the ground is virtually artificial, as in the new singularity and a data based reality. This is not a change in reality, but a change in the human who is becoming focused on data, technos, and mediation, rather than the essence of nature-earth as not only the unique habitat of the unique human and other beings, but the essence of reality which is manifested in the existence of life. This is the real ground of reality, but it requires relationship and experience. The usual example the author gives is that between water, as nature, and human being as an organism, and in this relationship, it can be seen that the essence of water is in the experience of drinking, not in the knowledge and ideas about water. This is a way to look at nature as essence, and life as the manifestation of that essence. In our megatrend, we are moving from this essence being the vision of reality being naturally spiritual toward reality being virtually artificial. Another way of saying this is the move from reality of being to the reality of knowing, or from a macro-cosmic reality to a microscopic truth.
Augmented (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies are increasingly being used in manufacturing processes. These use real and simulated objects to create a simulated environment that can be used to enhance the design and manufacturing processes.
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Applications in Manufacturing is written by experts from the world s leading institutions working in virtual manufacturing and gives the state of the art of the field.
- Chapters covering the state of the art in VR and AR technology and how these technologies can be applied to manufacturing.
- The latest findings in key areas of AR and VR application to manufacturing.
- The results of recent cross-disciplinary research projects in the US and Europe showing application solutions of AR and VR technology in real industrial settings.
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Applications in Manufacturing will be of interest to all engineers wishing to keep up-to-date with technologies that have the potential to revolutionize manufacturing processes over the next few years."
