Description: People at DEFROST are involved in the creation of the sofa-framework dedicated to the real-time modeling of soft-tissues for surgical simulation. The team will continue to participate the development of SOFA to be able to model and control soft-robots interacting with complex environment.


SoftRobots plugin for SOFA

Development website: Link

Contact person: Eulalie Coevoet.

Description: This SOFA plugin faciltate the modelling and control of a soft-robot. The real-time control of the desired motion of the soft-robot is made possible with the use of a very fast inverse Finite Element method. This project was financed by Inria: ADT DACCORD.


Model Order Reduction plugin

Development website: Link

Contact person: Olivier Goury and Felix Vanneste.

Description: This plugin guides you through the steps to build a reduced version of your SOFA simulation that you can run at high frame rate.


Hands on Soft Robotics

Development website: Link

Contact person: Louise Scherrer and Thor Morales Bieze

Description: A dedicated tutorials to learn about soft robots simulation in a pedagogical way.


Grasper Tutorials

Development repository: Link

Description: The purpose of those tutorials is to create soft graspers. Documentation and all resources needed to create the graspers are available on the development repository.
