This course will give a broad introduction to the topics of simulation and visualization.
In addition, the course provides an introduction to distributed programming and distributed simulation systems, as well as a brief introduction in creating 3D models.
Within simulation, the following topics will be covered (but is not limited to):
- What is simulation?
- What types of simulators exist, and what are their purposes?
- What is a good software architecture for simulation systems?
- How to build a distributed simulation system with the use of established international standards like HLA (High Level Architecture)
- Standards for Co-simulation and Model exchange
- How to achieve dynamic behavior in a simulator.
- Agent based modeling (ABM) and Multi Agent Systems (MAS)
Within visualization, the course will cover (but is not limited to):
- Different methods/technologies for visualization, such as projectors, screens (LCDs), VR/AR/XR.
- How do we achieve immersiveness?
- How to setup large scale visualisation solutions with multiple projectors (warp and edge blending)
- What are the differences between 3D drawings/models made for industrial manufacturing (CAD, CAM, CAE) and 3D models made for animation and real-time rendering?
- Introduction to 3D modeling in Blender
There will also be a visit to local companies working within the field of simulation and visualization.
The content of the course might vary somewhat from year to year.
