Paper Abstract

This paper will present a virtual environment for operations in the micro world. Virtual reality is a very important tool in task and assembly planning of micro assembly. This virtual environment presented in this paper is based on our micro operation model that takes into account rigid body dynamics, contact forces, friction forces, and available knowledge of van der Walls forces, electrostatic forces. This work lays ground for further development of micro operation techniques and micro assembly planning.
