Fine Object Manipulation in Virtual Environment

Part of the Eurographics book series (EUROGRAPH)


We have developped two calculation method for the manipulation in virtual environments. Impetus Method is based on only one phenomena, collision between the fingertip and the object. We start with the simple manipulation to push the object with one degrees of freedom and expand it to treat with more complicated phenomena. RSPM realizes the detailed manipulation. By using this, the object can be grasped, manipulated by 3 fingertips.
