Research Group of Prof. Dr. Elmar Schömer
New developments in the research area of computer graphics become directly visible through novel computer games and animated movies. The research group Computational Geometry investigates the theoretical foundations of efficient geometric algorithms and data structures and transfers research results in practical applications for simulating, analyzing and visualizing motion sequences. These also include applications in the field of computer aided design, automated motion planning and packing optimization.
Swept Volume Computation
We developed algorithms for computing the volume sweptout by moving components for construction planning and disassembly analysis.
One of our projects includes a method for determining the shape of the space available for moving machine parts.
