Realistic Virtual Cables in a 2D Environment Representing a 3D Virtual Reality
Keywords:virtual reality, virtual cables, Bezier curve, planes
A new method for the realistic visualization of virtual cables in a 2D environment, which is representing a 3D virtual reality, is presented in this paper. They are described with two consecutive cubic Bezier curves, whose common point is movable. Experiment was carried out and the optimal proportions for the parameters of the curves were obtained in order to achieve a realistic representation of cables. The suggested method has been developed for and implemented in the Engine for Virtual Electrical Engineering Equipment. The obtained results show that it is easy to manipulate the route of the virtual cables in 2D space and that they look realistic for any position of the control point.
