Visualization, modeling, simulation and interaction with 3D models. Applications in life sciences and urban environments

Starting January 2018 — Finishing December 2021

In this project, we focus on dealing with large models stemming mainly from two fields: life sciences and urban modeling. In life sciences we address three distinct sources of information: medical imaging devices (in the context of specific diagnostic problems and for training), molecular simulations in pharmacology, and biomechanical data. Concerning urban modeling, we focus on the generation of plausible models (geometric models, simulation of crowd behaviors, and of the decay due to natural processes) from the raw data. The data-capture systems in use in these applications (for example digital cartography or LIDAR scanners) provide models with incomplete information, or with not good enough quality for the applications we envision in engineering, architecture or smart cities. The general objectives of this project center on visualization, modeling urban environments, interaction and simulation of natural phenomena and the behavior of people and crowds. Despite the transversal nature of the proposed work, the specific objectives are conceived to facilitate the development of 3D applications meant to improve the quality of life of the people, both in their health (support for clinical diagnosis, simulations in sports biomechanics, design of new digs) and in their immediate surroundings (crowd behavior simulation, sustainable urban design, cultural heritage, energy efficiency analysis).
