Virtual Grasping

Demonstration of natural whole-hand interaction with virtual objects and different virtual cues for grasp control. Grasping is critical for applications requiring realistic interaction such as surgical simulation, manual assembly training, and vehicle design review. More...

 

Immersive Virtual Environment for Training of Dental Surgery

Users can practice steps in root canal procedure sitting at a virtual dental station. Instruments such as dental drill, mirror, and syringe are controlled by haptic devices to provide touch feedback. The simulation covers the stages of rubber dam application, anesthesia application, and drilling for access opening. Voice commands can be used to switch between instruments and to adjust the virtual patient. More...

 
 

 Automated Segmentation of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

 Abdominal aortic aneurysm segmentation has an important role in predicting rupture risk and pre-operative planning of endovascular repair. Highly accurate segmentation of the aorta is achieved by using variable neighborhood search in which search alternates between density and gradient spaces. users can view 3D reconstructions of the aorta for a variety of severity of the disease. More...

 

Mapping of Dengue Vector Breeding Sites from Street View Images

Google street view images are collected for various districts of Bangkok and object recognition is used to identify and count potential dengue vectors breeding sites such as jars, flower pots, and old tires. A heat map shows the areas of highest concentration and allows users to zoom in to see details. Filters allow users to focus on particular types of breeding sites and on images of particular time periods. More...

 

Hip-Replacement Implantation Preparation Simulator 

In cooperation with other German universities and medium-sized companies we are developing a simulation environment for hip replacement surgery. Our task in this project involves simulating realistic colliding physical behaviour when bone-mill and hip bone come in contact. Additionally, we are simulating the milling process of the bone material when it is drilled. More...
