Dr. Dinesh K. Pai has received an NSERC Idea to Innovation (I2I) Grant for his work on developing realistic computer models of skin and skin-like materials.
I2I Grants provide funding to university faculty members to support research and projects with recognized technology transfer potential.
The objective of his project is to develop a high-performance software library that can be used to simulate realistic skin movement. This project builds upon a recent breakthrough in Dr. Pai’s Sensorimotor Systems Lab’s research in simulating skin-like materials that move in close contact with the body.
