Reusable Virtual Elements for Virtual Environment Simulations


Francisco Luengo, Carol Soto


Vol. 6  No. 7  pp. 75-82


In this paper, we present guidelines for designing virtual elements that can be used for developing intelligent virtual environments, i.e. 3D environments with autonomous agents. We consider three kinds of virtual elements (rigid objects, smart objects, and autonomous agents) and their functionalities. These functionalities let them to interact one to each other. This approach allows for dynamically scaling and adapting the virtual element’s geometry and functions to different scenarios and simulations. We also explain the steps taken in order to construct and animate such environments from reusable virtual elements.
