Research

Starfish simulation with fully implicit two-way coupling

Starfish Simulation

A starfish with a skeleton consisting 752 of 20 joints and a coarse FEM mesh consisting of 221 vertices. For display and collision, a fine mesh is embedded with 7909 vertices 754 inside the coarse simulation mesh.
1. The material model is co-rotated elasticity, but any material model can be used. To avoid inversion in large deformation, invertible FEM method is applied.
2. The animation is controlled by RED/MAX hybrid dynamics. The locomotion of starfish is controlled procedurally by prescibing joints and some specific points on the skeleton.
3. The rest of the skeleton and the FEM mesh are passively simulated with fully implicit two-way coupling.

Research

Hand simulation with coupled interphalangeal joint motions

Hand Simulation

We simulate a human hand using hyper reduced coordinates on the most distal joint(DIP) / the second most distal joint(PIP) of the four fingers.
1. The animation is controlled by RED/MAX hybrid dynamics.
2. The fingertip positions are prescribed using maximal inverse dynamics.
3. The elbow angle is prescribed using reduced inverse dynamics.

Physically Based Modeling

Rigid Body Simulation

Rigid Body Simulation

The rigid body simulator simulates the dynamics of rigid body linkage system using maximal coordinates and reduced coordinates. The user can:
1. Decide the number of rigid bodies, the tree structure of the joints (branching, loop, etc).
2. Add constraints such as joint angle limits.
3. Add springy object such as springs, deformable objects, etc.

Realtime Fluid Simulation

CFD simulation

CFD Simulation

The CFD simulator allows the user to load a background image and paint density/obstruction into the scene. The user can:
1. Interactively change several related parameters: gravity constant, the size of time step, the number of Gauss-Seidel iteration desired, the number of iterations of Iterated Orthogonal Projections desired, etc.
2. Turn on/off three forces in the density field: Bouyant gravity force, Surface tension force, Vorticity confinement force.
3. Change between three advection schemes and compare their differences: Semi-Lagrangian, BFECC, Modified MacCormack(MM).

A Neural Algorithm of Artistic Style

We want to maintain the global arrangement from the original photograph and apply the colors and local structure of the artwork to it. We end up with a new synthetic image which has the style of the artwork and the content of the photograph.

Tic-Tac-Toe Robot by Flexible Control and Image Recognition

This project we assembled the robot and simulated the motion in Solidworks. We also devised a C program in AVR Studio to control the movement and provide an algorithm for the robot. We finally accomplished the image recognition process both in MATLAB and OpenCV.

Feature Detection and Matching

Feature Detection and Matching

This project is to detect discriminating features in an image and find the best matching features in other images. The features are reasonably invariant to translation, rotation, illumination, and scale.

Panorama Mosaic Stitching

Panorama Mosaic Stitching

Basicly, the workflow of generating panoramic photos is as follows: Take a bunch of photos. Warp them to spherical coordinate system. Align them properly. Stitch, crop and blend them to generate the final panorama.

Eigen Faces

img

Eigen Faces

In this project we create a face recognition system. The program reduces each face image to a vector, then uses Principal Component Analysis (PCA) to find the space of faces. This space is spanned by just a few vectors, which means each face can be defined by just a set of coefficients weighting these vectors.

Single View Modeling

Single View Modeling

We fill in various routines and ultimately create 3D texture-mapped models from a single image using the single view modeling method discussed in class. The steps of the project are: 1. Image acquisition 2. Calculate vanishing points 3. Choose reference points 4. Compute 3D coordinates of several points in the scene 5. Define polygons based on these points. 6. Compute texture maps for the polygons and output them to files. 7. Create a 3D texture-mapped VRML model

Eulerian Video Magnification

img

Eulerian Video Magnification

The intuitive approach to motion magnification is to identify points of interest between frames, track their movements and generate an optical flow field, and then amplify said field to produce the magnification effect. This is the core of the "Laplacian" method used in Liu et al. 2015. However, it is computationally intensive to derive and amplify said fields accurately, leading to the developments of the "Eulerian" approach utilized by Wu et al. 2012. The difference between the two approaches is analogous to the contrasting Laplacian and Euclidian perspectives in fluid mechanics. While the Laplacian approach tracks the movement of individual fluid particles, the Euclidian approach generalizes the same properties by analyzing the flow through voxels of fluid instead. Similarly, Eulerian Video Magnification does not identify explicit particles and track their movements, but instead analyzes the periodic intensity change of individual pixels over time and amplifies them.

Image Quilting for Texture Synthesis and Transfer

Image Quilting for Texture Synthesis and Transfer

In this project we implement Image Quilting for Texture Synthesis and Transfer, a SIGGRAPH 2001 paper by Alexei A. Efros and William T. Freeman. The paper presents a simple image-based method to do texture synthesis and texture transfer. Texture synthesis is the process of creating an image of arbitrary size from a small sample (grass sample above). Texture Transfer means re-redering an image in the style of another one (Abraham Lincoln above).

Gradient-Domain Fusion

Gradient-Domain Fusion

This project explores gradient-domain processing, a simple technique with a broad set of applications including blending, tone-mapping, and non-photorealistic rendering. For the core project, we will focus on "Poisson blending"; tone-mapping and NPR can be investigated. The primary goal is to seamlessly blend an object or texture from a source image into a target image.

A Simple Applet to Construct Trapezoidal Map using Sweep Line Algorithm

This project is an simple applet showing the plane sweep algorithm to construct a trapezoidal map. It shows the sweep line itself, the known events, and the segments that are on the sweep line, and highlights the changes that happen during events. (You might need to open it using Internet Explorer.)
