Efficient continuous collision detection

The student will develop novel continuous collision detection techniques using implict representations (e.g., signed distance fields) and polygonal meshes. The target application will be virtual surgical simulation using haptic rendering, and so the developed techniques will be evaluated on a 5 DoF force feedback device. 
 

Desired program of studies

Masters with thesis

Research domains

Sensors, Networks and Connectivity

Financing

Accepted candidates will be funded through a stipend. Funding is competitive with other Quebec universities.
