Ways of modelling engineering processes (First research Project)

Project: Research

Description

This PCFC Project investigated new ways of modelling images in real time using spheres and simple polyhedra and then applied the results to real time flight simulator applications. Finally, a transputer-based laser scanning system was created and some new image modelling methods were introduced for real time manufacturing applications.
