Vehicle Simulation: Perceptual Fidelity in the Design of Virtual Environments

Alfred T. Lee
November 08, 2017

This book covers the problem of fidelity in the design of virtual environments with specific reference to the design of vehicle simulators. The default design goal has been on the physical replication of a given real-world environment and, in the case of vehicles, the specific appearance and...

The Art of Flexure Mechanism Design

Simon Henein, Lennart Rubbert, Florent Cosandier, Murielle Richard
November 07, 2017

Mechanism constitute the mechanical organs of machines. They are generally composed of rigid segments connected to each other by articulated joints. The function of the joints is to act as bearings, i.e. to constraint the relative motion of the segments it connects, while leaving a freedom of...
