Virtual Environments for Robotics Education
The article discusses impediments that face researchers and academic institutions that try to implement training programs. The ability of virtual modeling and simulation (VM&S) systems to mitigate some problems is explained. A solution system, Virtual Robots (VROBO), is developed to demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach.
