Journal club announcements and wrap-up

Journal club: Bowyer et al 2013.

By Fernando Gonzalez Herrera | April 2, 2021

Bowyer et at. presents a review of active constrains in a generalized active constraint implementation framework; by defining, evaluating and enforcing these constraints. Geometry based definitions can simple as single point, and more complex e.g. a parametric 3D surface. The evaluation is made by computing metrics to and from the active constraint, to the constrained…
