Just a note about the mathworks article.
Simulink Virtual Reality Toolbox has been renamed to Simulink 3D Animation as from Matlab vers. 2009.
Worked with VR toolbox appr. 6y ago and at that time it was a pure single client to server application with propertarian client and internal protocol. Very easy to set up the connection between server/application and client.
They have extended multiple client to one application server.
Simulink are fairly easy to create a dynamic model trough a graphical editor of the model.
The import and editing of grapical objects and sceens in V-Realm editor that comes with the 3D Animator are also easy to use.
But as far I know the 3D animator can only be runned on the 3D animator client for 3D interaction.

Like the article about enhancing model simulation with 3D sceens, there are many advantages in this.
Back in -04 we worked on a application with VR-tool box to prerun the motions of a motionplatform for off-road vehicles to evauation any saftey hazards in letting people on the platform and do the same simulation.
The approach was to apply one or more 3 arrows ( x-, y- and Z-direction ) on the VR body of the driver and let their size and color change with the calculated acceleration in those directions.
Geometrical models done and we where on the simulink model when we had to focus on other things.

Appr. 15 y ago we used enhanced grapical technique for Particle Image Velocimetry technique, made a big diffrence in understaning the behaviur of the flow in wather. http://www.springerlink.com/content/t912840551063848/

Looking forward to follow the progress in this area.

There is a nice program out there to show how a 3D Interactive animation could look: http://www.algodoo.com/wiki/Home
For a short introduction and inspiratio: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qa9xn-xYQQk
The simulation engiine behind the GUI are described at: http://www.algoryx.se/ and they are interested in developing HTML5/3D as a GUI.

Dear Saurabh,

Great article on 3D Simulation<http://www.ecnmag.com/Articles/2010/09/Design-Talk/Enhancing-Simulation-Studies-with-3D-Animation/>!  We at the Web3D Consortium (keepers  of X3D and VRML) would like to merit you for envisioning the value proposition of using open standards 3D authoring tools in the engineering field. Creating rich interactive and immersive 3D content with modeling, animation and behaviors has several challenges. Your discussions and examples (X3D/VRML) on powerful standards based 3D technology for functionality and interoperability is essential to bring 3D to the mainstream.  Might we publish excerpts from your article on our home page (MailScanner has detected a possible fraud attempt from "mail.ltu.se" claiming to be www.web3d.org<https://mail.ltu.se/owa/UrlBlockedError.aspx>)

Web3D Consortium along with its members is maintaining and extending its standardization activities to build cohesive durable 3D standards for the industry. Some of our recent development work involve:  A Mobile + HTML5 profile<http://www.web3d.org/x3d/wiki/index.php/X3D_and_HTML5> for X3D, Boundary Representations (B-Reps) nodes, X3D Earth: “mash up” globe data on-the-fly from OpenStreetMap and OpenAerialMap, Compressed Binary Encoding support and more.  We also have collaborative efforts with ISO, W3C, DICOM, Khronos and OGC standards organizations to move our standard forward.
If you have any questions regarding our standard or organization please feel free to call or email me at anita.havele at web3d.org<mailto:anita.havele at web3d.org>. We look forward to your further support of the X3D/VRML standard and invite you to get involved with this evolving technology while networking with 3D technology leaders.
Best regards,
Anita Havele
