Welcome to the MimeTIC Research Team Website
The MimeTIC research team focuses on designing methods for simulating virtual humans that behave in realistic manners and act with realistic motions. “Realistic” means that a real human would have behave and moved the same way in the same situation. It involves understanding how real people control their motion and behave in order to design models capable of generating realistic virtual humans. The main research axes of MimeTIC target Motion analysis, Autonomous virtual humans, and Physical activity in virtual reality.
MimeTIC is a multidisciplinary team structured through:
