Research in Interactive Design Vol. 2 provides an overview of a wide range of original research and engineering activities related to high-realistic multi-sensorial virtual prototyping dedicated to the improvement of industrial innovation. It is time for usual design and manufacturing support systems to change. Innovation requires industry to have new techniques that enable the rapid emergence of creative ideas, the development of low cost solutions, and the creation of technical consensus immediately to market and economic requirements. Virtuality should be used as early as possible in the industrial process permitting experts to rapidly explore solution spaces,to accurately study draft solutions in their future environment in a high-realistic way and to assess sketch product efficiency with futur product end-users. Interactive methods, tools and processes respond to these expectations. Interactive design and manufacturing covers a wide spectrum of multidisciplinary research largely represented in this book where you will find in-depth details related to: reduced modelling techniques: a new approach to extended and adaptive behavioural simulation development, embedded mechatronic instruments: a new approach multi-sensorial simulation implementation, interactive decision making in innovation: a new socio-technical analysis and process. In this book,both researchers and industrialists will discover the most recent interactive design techniques, and are certain to walk away with new understanding of important concepts.
