Development of a Dynamic Virtual Reality Model of the Inner Ear Sensory System as a Learning and Demonstrating Tool

Figure 8

Schematic block diagram of how the virtual reality world is created and controlled. The VRML files are created using a CAD software. The Simmechanics module permits to represent and keep the physics of the modeling. All the data are imported into a MATLAB/Simulink model where the virtual reality toolbox is used. This Simulink file is controlled by the kinematics of the simulation and the vestibular model.
