title Enhancing Realism in Exploring in Virtual Environments
source CAADRIA 2008 [Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia] Chiang Mai (Thailand) 9-12 April 2008, pp. 662-628
summary A virtual environment is a place which requires context, content and actors to promote realism in the exploration process. With the advancement in technologies and computing power, the context of virtual environments could be sculpted in finely. Referencing movie and video games, it would not be difficult to draft the content. The only component being overlooked is the actor. In this paper, I will address the mechanism and challenges in the implementation of autonomous agents as actors in virtual environment so as to promote social sense and enliven the environment, hence enhancing realism in the exploration.
