Research and Implementation of Haptics Device Integration With a DynamicsSimulation Engine

Virtual environments represented by multibody system models play an important role in many applications. Adding the possibility of the user directly interacting with such environments via physical touch using haptics can significantly enhance the usability and range of application of simulated environments.

Solution of complementarity problems arising from rigid body dynamics simulations

Modeling and simulation of realistic motion is one of the important topics in mechanical engineering and related areas. Such simulations become much more challenging when rigid body dynamics with frictional contacts appears. The total number of contact points is very important and is a key element to determine the difficulty level of the simulation, meaning that if the number of contact points increases, the simulation becomes too difficult or even impossible. In this project, we would like to develop algorithms by which we can do the simulation for large number of contact points.
