The Evolution of Virtual Humans in NVE Systems

Magnenat-Thalmann, N. and Joslin, C.


Abstract: In this paper we present the evolution of Virtual Humans in Networked Virtual Environment Systems (NVE) where advanced interaction is involved. Starting with the most basic pioneering NVE Systems, we demonstrate the evolution through architecture, and operating systems and basic improvements made to the system, problems and limitations. We present five main examples, the basic original systems, two advanced scenarios involving multiple Virtual Humans, the State of the Art in NVE Systems and our latest development under the Windows Operating System (OS). We conclude with our case study demonstrating the teaching of Virtual Dance over the Internet.
