Abstract

Virtual objects in a web-based environment can be interfaced to and controlled by external real world controllers. A Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) inspection cell was created that models a realtime inspection system The inspection system consists of a Cordax coordinate measuring machine (CMM), an inspection probe, a vision system for determining the part position and orientation, and an open architecture controller [1]. The controller performs real-time processing of sensor data for feedback control of the inspection probe. The open architecture controller permits access to data, such as the probe position and the part position and orientation, to drive a VRML model of the system.
