    PLENARY SPEAKERS


      Prof. Nobuhiko Mukai

    Tokyo City University, Japan

    Speech Title: VR based Simulator for Japanese Flower Arrangement

    Nobuhiko Mukai is a professor of Graduate School of Integrative Science and Engineering, Tokyo City University. He received his B.E., M.E., and Ph.D degrees from Osaka University in 1983, 1985, and 2001 respectively. He started to work at Mitsubishi Electric Corporation and changed to work as an associate professor at Musashi Institute of Technology in 2002. He is currently a professor of Tokyo City University from 2007. His research interests are computer graphics and image processing. He is a member of ACM, SAS, VRSJ, IEICE, ITE, IPSJ, IIEEJ, and JSUM.

    Abstract: In the world, there are varieties of flower arrangements and many people are enjoying them. Flower arrangement makes people happy, while it takes great expense to learn the techniques since living flowers are needed for the training. In Japan, there is a flower arrangement called “Ikebana”, Then, we have developed a virtual reality based simulator for Ikebana training, with which people can learn Ikebana techniques repeatedly without living flowers. The system uses two haptic devices so that people can handle flowers with both hands and feel the force when they put a flower into “Kenzan”, which is a kind of tool that has many needles and keeps flowers on it. The simulator handles 3D models generated by computer graphics modeling software so that the trainees can confirm the arrangement from any angles. People can also get stereoscopic view with inclination glasses so that they can have the space perception during the training. In addition, there is a guideline for the training so that people can learn the technique without trainers and they can evaluate their designs by comparison with a sample designed by a trainer.
