Armstrong Atlantic State University
Explores haptic technology and its potential to help students understand the difficult concepts underlying Pascal's Principle and its application to hydraulics.
Armstrong Atlantic State University
The Armstron Atlantic State Univeristy is also exploring H3DAPI to investigate techniques that will allow an additional human sense to be sent over the internet.
Develops a 3D surgical planning tool that enables surgeons to virtually plan fracture surgery (osteosynthesis) using haptic feedback. The application comprises virtual surgical implant bending, screw placement and real time collision detection of implant and bone surface.
Certec, Lunds University
Seeks to make web based information more accessible to persons with visual impairments by using haptic & sound feedback.
Spinal anaesthesia with haptics at Cork University HospitalCork University Hospital and University of Limerick
Develops a simulation-based assessment procedure for spinal anaesthesia. The simulator uses H3DAPI for haptics and computer graphics. The project is named MedCAP and is funded through the EU Leanardo da Vinci Lifelong Learning Programme.
CTV (KTH and Karolinska University Hospital)
Develops a haptic milling surgery simulator. The volumetric CT-data is used for both haptic- and graphic rendering. Research focus is on multiple point collision detection and realistic 6-DOF haptic milling feedback. The visuslization is performed by using augmented reality and haptics.
Curictus AB
Curictus AB is a medical device company which provides an integrative system incorporating semi-immersive workbench with 3D stereographic display and shutter glasses, haptic virtual games, game station, and back-end support for tele-rehabilitation.
Durham university
The Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) group is using H3D to measure customer haptic perception for online shopping applications. H3DAPI is used with a SensAble Omni for experiments and data collection of weight and texture thresholds.
Forsslund Systems
Research and development of a oral surgery simulator, focusing on surgical extraction of wisdom teeth, an important skill for every graduating dental student, who today only get to know the procedure in theory. H3D API is used for all graphical rendering as well as the basis for the specialized drilling force feedback algorithm.
Imperial College London
Imperial College London is using H3DAPI for their research and teaching in medical visualization and simulation. Project involves Haptic Deformable Shapes using Open Source libraries SOFA and H3DAPI as well as Computer based multi-sensorial environment for anatomy teaching.
Develops a PC-based haptic simulator to allow doctors to feel an accurate representation of the sensations involved in piercing the skin and the layers of muscle underneath.
Innovative Sports Training
Develops the MotionMonitor together with SenseGraphics and SensAble Technologies to offer stereoscopic visualization displays as integrated turn-key systems with haptic feedback, body tracking and eye tracking.
Iowa State University, Virtual Reality Applications Center
Creates natural and intuitive ways for geoscientists to interact with surface data via vision, touch and sound.
KAEMaRT, Politecnico di Milano
KAEMaRT research group of Politecnico di Milano in the PUODARSI project uses the H3D API in order to modify the shape of existing style objects and evaluate the effects of the change of the shape on Structural and Computational Fluid Dynamics simulations.
University of Karlsruhe, MeGI, Microscope Embedded Neurosurgical Training System
The medical group (MeGI) of Institute for Process Control and Robotics is using H3D in the development of a neurosurgical simulator directed towards both educational and preoperative purposes. It is based on real operating microscope and haptic interface.
MedaPhor MedaPhor
UK company MedaPhor uses H3D technology to produce innovative and risk-free medical ultrasound training in the fields of gynaecology and obstetrics.
Embeds the simulator with extensive educational content and bone drilling techniques all with reportable content enabling a complete immersive training environment for trainee surgeons.
MOOG FCS is using H3DAPI for the graphical 3D content in their new dental simulator.
Norrköping Visualization and Interaction Studio (NVIS)
NVIS uses H3D in their research on haptic interaction with volumetric data, for applications in volume visualization and in molecular haptics. H3D is also used in the development of the the Volume Haptics Toolkit (VHTK) which is a result of this research and is used in the further developments of concepts and algorithms.
Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC)
RIC uses H3DAPI as the multi-modal API for research on rehabilitation. H3DAPI is used in a Paris Desk with Flock of Birds tracking system for experiments and data collection. The device-independence H3DAPI is used to run experiments on a wide range of haptic robots without the need to modify the source code.
University of Southern Queensland, AliveX3D
Works on the AliveX3D platform which is a set of easy-to-use online tools which empower teachers and students to create interoperable multi-user 3D e-Learning applications.The AliveX3D platform is built on top of the strength of the H3D API and will enable contemporary e-Learning with haptic experiences.
University of Wales Bangor, CRaIVE
Drives new paradigms in interventional radiology training within virtual environments. Initial work concentrates on deriving accurate haptics based on measured forces in vivo with the goal of accurate simulation of the spectrum of interventional radiological needle puncture procedures.
Uppsala University, Center for Image Analysis
Developes a system with haptic interaction for medical image segmentation with deformable surface models. Haptics is used to facilitate initialization of the model close to the structure of interest and also to guide the model during deformation.
IFE Institute for Energy Technology
Uses haptic interaction in future control rooms. IFE wishes through this project to explore if haptic interaction devices may contribute to improved performance and optimized control of industrial processes as opposed to mice and keyboards which re not designed for the complex and special challenges observed in control room environments.
