Abstract

In this paper an interactive simulation system for teeth cleaning is presented. This simulation system offers assistance for optimizing design and manufacturing of new toothbrushes. Data acquisition and pre-processing techniques for the model generation are shown, an editor for modelling of the elastic behaviour of the toothbrushes parts is presented and the mathematical method for modelling of flexible parts of the toothbrush is explained. After the introduction of the PHANToM haptoid and the explanation of a new approach to collision detection, first results of the project are shown.
