After applications of virtual reality (VR) in the realm of flight simulators and computer games a need to exercise these technologies in industry is rising significantly. Nowadays one of the typical domains of using a virtual reality is designing and prototyping in automotive and air industry. A practical solution for a virtual model is using a virtual reality modeling language (VRML) that supports the distribution of three-dimensional models over the Internet. Web based virtual reality technology offers possibilities for sharing virtual models for supporting collaborative work and concurrent engineering. There are more standardized tools for virtual reality technology distributing 3D models by VRML. Another possible solution for exploiting an Internet environment through VRML is using a non-standard software package on PC basis created for 3D simulation and programming of automated workplaces, robots and other peripheral devices. The article is describing procedures for implementation of VRML 2.0 into software ROANS, which has been created in another programming language than VRML versions.
