Computer simulation of body dynamics including a solver that solves in linear time for a set of constraints using vector processing

File for Quick & Easy Patent Protection with PowerPatent.

The Nvidia Corporation patent solves the following problem:

Simulating the dynamics of solid bodies are important in many applications such as, for example, virtual reality devices, simulator and computer games. To be realistic, the simulation takes into account the interaction of the body through contact such as collisions and connections. For example, if a video game character is an articulated body with arms and legs, and a scene that involved touching nature, it is not realistic if arm's character temporarily separated from upper arm to the nature of the elbow during a body movement. Thus, in a simulation process that made the simulator hardware or an automated system simulation program according to the instructions (for example, software, codes, etc.) to operate according to the general principles of a designer considered necessary to result in realistic simulations. For example, a designer may think that the members included in the joints that remain attached to any moving parts under friction or not, the parts have weight and are subject to gravity , etc.

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

Nvidia Corporation’s patent US 7493244 B2 deals with Computer simulation of body dynamics including a solver that solves in linear time for a set of constraints using vector processing.
Computer simulation of the dynamics of rigid bodies in association with collisions, stacks and joints made using a control-based system where the constraints are described in terms of the position of the body. Forced by the reaction force needed to ensure that the bodies keep the funding position shall be calculated and be iteratively by updating the formula defining the forces of reaction and pressed so that computation time and memory resources needed to do the calculations is linearly dependent on the number of bodies and the number of contacts and joints in the body. Computational requirements and memory requirements reduced further by making calculations using vector operations.
