The proposed architecture may be utilized to create digital libraries for a set
of industry applications for training and simulation purposes. The investigation
results in developing computational and algorithmic frameworks for establishing
such environments. Furthermore, original models and libraries for human-robotics
interaction could be developed based on the proposed algorithms to devise efficient
infrastructures for a targeted educational or industrial application.
