A Survey of Virtual Assembly Technology
Due to the worldwide competition of manufacturing industry and the development of virtual reality (VR) technology, virtual assembly (VA) has attracted many researchers to reduce development cost and improve product quality. As a typical application of VR in engineering, VA has become increasingly important for modern industry. In this paper, a survey of research progress about VA is analyzed. The conception and architecture of VA are introduced at first, the classification is also presented, then the main research contents and key techniques are discussed, finally the limitations and future works are pointed out.
