As architect and implementor, transformed LAN-based control system
for Scanning Probe Microscopes
into a distributed, multithreaded, object-oriented application.
is used daily by scientists at UNC, attracts visiting scientists,
and has been installed at other sites, including KU Leuven in Belgium.
This and derivative systems
are currently being considered for commercialization by three
Virtual Reality Peripheral Network:
Major contributor to core abstractions of public-domain
for controlling trackers and other devices used in Virtual Reality systems.
Pioneered use of VRPN for asynchronous remote procedure call.
The library has been widely adopted at VR research centers outside UNC,
both academic and industrial, and is now commercially supported.
Designed and implemented prototype of collsion detection software
that combines the strengths of the two dominant approaches:
object bounding hierarchies and n-body methods.
Intended only to support a proposed extension to the VRML standard;
but has been found useful enough to be adopted by many different groups.
