High-fidelity simulations of micro-scale geometry
This project focuses on development of a framework for synthesizing frictional behavior through very fine-scale elastic simulations. The student will construct high resolution elastic models from scans of real-world objects. Simulations using the scanned surfaces should match the frictional behavior of the real-objects, which is measured as part of a related project. A key challenge here will be achieving stable simulations that are tractable.
Knowledge of video games, physics simulation, and/or 3D graphics is beneficial. Experience with motion capture technology is also helpful (cameras, IMUs, optical markers). All candidates should have strong programming skills, particularly in C++, Python, or MATLAB
Desired program of studies
Masters with thesis
Sensors, Networks and Connectivity
Accepted candidates will be funded through a scholarship. Funding is competitive with other Quebec universities.
Starting : Autumn 2022 / Winter 2023
