Touch and design

Objective

The project aims at developing a novel system for shape generation and modification based on novel haptic interaction and intelligent shape manipulation operators in order to exploit existing manual skill of designers. Haptic technology will be integrated together with modeling operators for providing a working environment offering high degree of usability and acceptance, comfort of usage, flexibility for any kind of user, including inexperienced users. The system will capture the design intent, inferring commands to apply from designers haptic gestures. Designers will be able to manipulate generative constraints using their hands, and not mathematical equations and formula.
