Computational steering in the CAVE
Scientists can gain much more insight from their simulations if they are enabled to change simulation parameters on the y while observing the results immediately. A crucial aspect of such computational steering is an intuitive user interface. We have developed an environment that enables researchers to construct such interfaces e ciently and e ectively for graphical workstations. In this paper we report on our next step towards more intuitive user-interfaces: We have modi ed our system for use in the CAVE. The CAVE is a projection-based virtual environment. Virtual environments are designed to provide the e ect of immersion in an interactive three-dimensional computer-generated environment. We show that the use of virtual environments for computational steering interfaces can improve interaction with the simulation and immersion in the computational process. We present our system, the methods we have developed for improved 3D interaction, and describe three applications.
