Development of Volumetric Models in a Tele-operated Environment with Force Smoothing PlaybackThe purpose of this project was to develop a method of creating a virtual model from user exploration in a tele-operated environment. The virtual model is developed by creating a finite and discrete voxel matrix. The model, developed after sufficient exploration, would be replayed back to the user with a force shading technique. This voxel based rendering system could be used to fill in extraneous time delays in tele-operated systems. More information regarding the details of this project are provided
