SHIVA (InterReg II-Seas, 2010-2013)

Participants : Fabrice Aubert, Géry Casiez, Samuel Degrande, Laurent Grisoni [correspondant] , Damien Marchal, Yosra Rekik, Nicolas Roussel.

This project aims at providing virtual reality-based tools for sculpting, targeted on virtual rehabilitation, and children with disabilities. Sculpting was traditionally used within medical context, and has been removed because of practical cost, and also hygienic aspects. In this project, we plan to built up tools for virtual sculpting through adapted interface, and propose a set of exercices that would involved cognitive skills of user (assembly, object reproduction, boolean operations, etc.).

Partners: Inria [Mint, project coordinator], Hopale Fundation, University of Bournemouth, Victoria school in Poole.
