Project SoHuSim on modeling muscle tissue during contraction in 3D movements using SOFA software and functional modeling of the organs. 150 kE. Partners: INRIA Evasion, Tecnalia, HPC, CHU Montpellier (Oct. 2010 - Oct. 2014).


Participants : Christine Azevedo-Coste, David Guiraud, David Andreu.

SENSAS is an INRIA ADT (Actions de Développement Technologique), implying several INRIA project teams on the “SENSor network ApplicationS” theme. SENSAS aims to propose applications based on wireless sensor and actuator network nodes provided from the work done around senslab and senstools preliminary projects. SENSAS is organized around the following work packages :

  • SensRob : Robotics applications

  • SensBio : Bio-Logging applications

  • SensMGT : Wireless sensor/actuator network management/configuration applications

  • SensBox : Wireless sensor/actuator network simulation applications and tools

Our team is mainly implied in the SensBio work package, in particular for the following applications: Spinal Cord Injured Patients FES-Assisted Sit to Stand, Post-Stroke Hemiplegic Patient FES-correction of drop foot, Gait analysis of parkinson freezing and Motion analysis of longterm race data.
