Five new very interesting publications using SOFA highlighted, among them 3 IROS papers!!
First, one journal paper was published:
- in IEEE BMM about the A Multifidelity Approach for Efficient Personalisation of 3D Cardiac Electromechanical Models:
this work introduces an original multifidelity approach between a 3D cardiac model and a simplified “0D” version of this model, which enables to get reliable (and extremely fast) approximations of the global behaviour of the 3D model using 0D simulations.
Four conference articles were also accepted:
- at CBME 2017, An Immersed Boundary Method for Detail-Preserving Soft Tissue Simulation from Medical Images:
based on the Immersed Boundary Method (IBM), authors bridge the gap between these imaging modalities and the fast simulation of soft tissue deformation on complex shapes represented by a surface mesh directly retrieved from binary images;
- at IROS 2017, Morphological Computation: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly:
this work is the first to propose a systematic approach that can be used in an automated design process. It is based on calculating a low-dimensional representation of an observed behavior, which can be used to distinguish between good and bad morphological computation;
- at IROS 2017, Automated Co-Design of Soft Hand Morphology and Control Strategy for Grasping:
authors present an efficient simulator for simulating grasps with soft hands which is based on the SOFA framework and enables us to simulate more than a million grasps per day;
- at IROS 2017, Visual Servoing Control of Soft Robots based on Finite Element Model:
the method allows for a first control of the robot, in the actuator space; then, a second control strategy based on the feedback of infrared cameras is developed to obtain a correction of the effector position.
Congratulations to the authors!
