Unity3d & Virtual Humans 2020 (88x)


The references below discuss the use of virtual human animation in various contexts, including modeling the behavior of crowds of people and creating virtual environments for use in simulations and high-immersive virtual reality experiences. It also touches on the importance of realism and interactivity in creating virtual humans and the challenges that can be involved in implementing them. The text also mentions the use of virtual humans as avatars in intercultural communication skills training and in psychiatric diagnosis, as well as the potential for virtual humans to be used as visual guides in exercises for observational practice. It also discusses the use of virtual reality, digital human models, and discrete event simulation for performing ergonomic assessments. Finally, the text mentions the use of a methodology for addressing the real-time simulation of a soft membrane and an experiment conducted in a high-immersive virtual reality environment to study the effect of the presence of a virtual observer on cheating behavior.
