    Growing demand for use of Internet/Web-based services in real-time distributed virtual simulation (RT-DVS) and other real-time applications is fueling extensive interest in overlay multicast protocols. These applications demand Quality of Service (QoS) and many-to-many multicast services that are not available in underlying Internet services today. This paper describes an early implementation of a... View full abstract»

    The high level architecture (HLA) standard developed by the Department of Defense in the United States is a key technology to perform distributed simulation. Inside the HLA framework, many different simulators (termed federates) may be interconnected to create a single, more complex simulator (federation). Data distribution management (DDM) is an optional subset of services that controls which fed... View full abstract»

    Group communication in large-scale interactive applications such as real-time conferencing and collaboration, networked virtual environments (e.g. massively multi-player games) requires efficient, low-overhead group communication mechanisms. In this paper we consider the application-level (or end-system) multicast and propose a stateless group communication mechanism together with its tree buildin... View full abstract»

    The network simulator ns-2 implements both wireless networks and emulation — a feature that allows to simulate a network environment among real stations. However, the real-time requirements of a network emulation introduce an inaccurate timing behavior of the simulator scheduler. These timing errors have a negative impact on the performance of network protocols in ns-2. Even more, they lead to fal... View full abstract»

    Collaborative Virtual Environments (CVE) are a form of telecommunication technology that bring together co-located or remote, participants within a spatial social and information context. Collaboration occurs between people and often around shared objects. Fruitful cooperation is helped by natural and intuitive ways of communicating and sharing, for which responsiveness and consistency are leading... View full abstract»

    A collaborative, haptic, audio and visual environment (C-HAVE) consists of a network of nodes. Each node in the C-HAVE world contributes to the shared environment with some virtual objects. These can be static, e.g., a sculpture or the ground, or dynamic, e.g., an object that can be virtually manipulated. We aim at developing a heterogeneous scalable architecture for large collaborative haptics en... View full abstract»

    One of the challenges for 3D multi-user virtual simulation environments (3D MUVEs) developers is to keep the shared virtual simulation environment synchronized among all the participating users´ terminals. Support to 3DMUVEs through traditional client-server communication model offers simpler management but can lead to bottlenecks and higher latencies. Peer-to-peer communication model, on the othe...

    Distributed Interactive Applications (DIAs) have been gaining commercial success in recent years due to the widespread appeal of networked multiplayer computer games. Within these games, participants interact with each other and their environment, producing complex behavioural patterns that evolve over time. These patterns are non-linear, and often appear to exhibit dependencies under certain cond... View full abstract»

    State-of-the-art Massively Multiplayer Games such as EverQuest and Ultima Online are currently implemented as client-server systems. Although this approach allows the development of commercially viable MMG services, the costs associated with running a scalable client-server MMG service are often too high for small companies or research projects. This paper proposes FreeMMG, a mixed peer-to-peer an... View full abstract»

    The hybrid strategy-based modeling approach is a method for reducing the number of network packets that need to be transmitted to maintain global consistency in Distributed Interactive Applications. It combines a short-term model such as dead reckoning with a long-term strategy model. A key aspect of this approach is to determine strategies that users adopt in navigating the simulated environment ... View full abstract»

    Running a large-scale HLA-based simulation in a distributed environment may require large amounts of computing resources at geographically different locations. A simulation running for a long period of time may result in imbalance of load levels at different computing hosts, hence leading to degradation of performance. Performance typically improves if the workload can be equally distributed among... View full abstract»
