Interactive Multiuser VEs in the DIVE System
Spring 1996 (vol. 3 no. 1)
pp. 30-39

Multiuser virtual environments (VEs) raise challenging research questions concerning how users interact with objects, applications, and other users, and how distributed VEs behave when the number of users increases. The Distributed Interactive Virtual Environment (DIVE) is a software platform for multiuser VEs that has served as a toolkit for many distributed VE applications. It emphasizes networking and human-computer interaction and supports autonomous behavior-driven objects, collision detection, and audio and 3D navigation.
