"Using Immersive Virtual Environments for Certification"
This paper introduced the use of immersive virtual environments (VE) for certifications of critical systems and systems with embedded software. The physical aspects of a virtual environment were briefly covered citing C2 model as an example. The virtual environment concept is linked to the real world when it is used to simulate real systems to mimic them in exact conditions. However, limitations of using VEs come in when the virtual world cannot simulate an exact match with the physical characteristics of the real world. The factors to decide whether a system may require using VEs to certify are also discussed.
