Collision detection and response
P. Meseure as well as A. Kheddar from LSC (Evry) and F. Faure (Evasion Project, Grenoble) have managed the "Action Specifique" (AS) of the CNRS entitled "Collision Detection and Response" during 2003. This AS aims at providing a complete state of the art of collision detection and response. Indeed, these subjects have been studied in various contexts and by several disciplines such as Robotics, Computer Animation, computing geometry... This AS ens at the end of 2003 and states a number of open questions about the covered topics.
ARC Intestines Surgical Simulation
The team Alcove participates in this national initiative in collaboration with EVASION (project-team INRIA), ITM ("institut des technologies médicales"), SIMEDGE and IRCAD. This ARC aimed at proposing techniques and algorithm for real-time animation of highly deformable, self-colliding object. The result   of this collaboration has been a real-time surgical simulator including intestine and mesentera manipulation.
Project Alspeme (RNTL) : development of frameworks for medical simulators (in collaboration with ITM and Simedge)
Project e-simulation (RNTS) : development of a platform for ophtmalogist (for e-training in diagnostic and therapy).
Project Simv@l (RNTS).
