(PETAH-TIKVA, ISRAEL, APRIL 22, 2010) Intel will be demonstrating OptiTex technology at the 1st Research@Intel Europe Day to be held on May 4th -5th at the Renaissance Brussels Hotel, Belgium.
Intel will demonstrate the “OptiTex Implicit cloth simulation engine”, resulting from cooperation with OptiTex over the past few months, aimed at proving the potential of parallel computing for highly demanding computational applications.
The OptiTex technologies demo will address the technical challenges of accurate physical simulation of clothing, which yield high degrees of complex motion governed by stiff partial differential equations. OptiTex is working together with Intel to solve these challenges by optimizing complex algorithms such as: systems of linear equations, collision detection and force field calculations. Realistic rendering is also being addressed. The demo utilizes 3D visualization technology for garment fitting by synthetically reproducing a three dimensional model of clothing items. It incorporates innovative solutions for various compute intensive problems, i.e. real time physics, capable of solving stiff differential equations photo realistic advanced interactive rendering, accurate synthesis of a wide range of human body shapes, advanced content creation tools. Running on the latest Intel® Xeon® processor 5680 and multithreaded by means of OpenMP, to this date a 14x performance scalability of the OptiTex demo has been achieved.
The 1st Research@Intel Europe Day will introduce European press, analysts, commissioners, and other VIP guests to Intel’s research and vision for the future of information technology. This will include a keynote speech from Justin Rattner, Intel CTO, roundtable sessions, and a demo showcase of technologies from Intel Labs Europe and beyond.
