  • Theme : Image synthesis and virtual reality

Team presentation

This project considers all methods needed for producing sequences of computer-generated images. There are three key tracks:
  • computer graphics, where we are seeking to define algorithms;
  • simulation, with the aim of matching our algorithms against numerical values measured on a real site;
  • the system organization to process "life-size" cases and validate our approach by implementing them.

Research themes

  • Modelling complex scenes (3D) and especially the shape of objects in terms of constraints and properties.
  • Simulation of lighting: introduction of lighting models based on physics.
  • Simulation of physical systems: study of computing diagrams needed to produce the equations controlling these systems.
  • Parallel algorithms: research into reducing the complexity of sequential algorithms and the study of parallel schemes for these algorithms.

International and industrial relations

  • Giat-Industrie: Virtual Training.
  • ROBEA ECOVIA : Study of Visuo-Haptic Integration
  • TCAN AMELIE : Multidisciplinary Approach for Cognition and Interaction in Immersive Virtual Environments
  • ROBEA Bayesian Models for Motion Generation
  • NoE: Intuition : core group member
