Abstract

This paper presents an online robot simulation tool built using X3D, extensible 3D graphics that can be used as either an educational or design tool. A literature review of some current web-based learning tools is outlined in the context of mechanisms and robotics. Also, different web technologies that were tested in the process of building the simulation tool are discussed, along with a technical review of current desktop sharing software available online. Lastly, an example of a virtual robot is presented with the technical design information explained in detail. Enhanced by a robust user interface, the simulation environment is intuitive for users with limited mechanical design background. A powerful "back-end" computational engine is envisioned to allow for various interactive features in simulations to be accomplished.
