Virtual Reality - Realistic Simulation
Virtual Reality enables the realistic presentation of simulated situations. It makes dynamic processes visible in real time. It creates computer-generated worlds that the observer can experience and influence interactively. This creates a very effective learning environment.
The presentation of virtual worlds requires the use of special output equipment. Stereo glasses, realistic audio systems and human-machine interfaces with tactile feedback blur the borders between simulation and reality. The pinnacle of virtual reality here is the use of motion platforms such as those used for flight and driving simulators. These add the illusion of simulated gravity experiences to the optical and other sensory illusions.
