Assistive Computer Units & Software Program

For instance, at the Naval Postgraduate School, the NPSNET Research Group is at present using Software Systems’ costly and proprietary MultiGen CAD software for the development of physics-free models for its SGI Performer-based NPSNET-4 system. Computer-aided design techniques with retrofitted physics are beginning to be developed (e.g., Deneb Robotics and Parametric Technologies), but these methods are expensive and proprietary. The VPL Reality Built for Two system (Blanchard et al., 1990) used a Macintosh II as its design station for stable modeling and an IRIS workstation as its rendering/display … Read More
