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
Sensors, Networks and Connectivity
Accepted candidates will be funded through a stipend. Funding is competitive with other Quebec universities.
