This paper describes a virtual reality system in which the user can perform assembly tasks in a simulated workshop. This PC-based VR system integrates a force feedback device, the Rutgers Master II. It allows the user to feel the interaction with virtual tools and makes the training task in a synthetic environment closer to reality. The application also allows object manipulation with mechanical behavior, navigation, collision detection and other features.
