Title
(EN) THREE-DIMENSIONAL SIMULATOR AND IMAGE SYNTHESIZING METHOD
(FR) SIMULATEUR TRIDIMENTIONNEL ET PROCEDE DE SYNTHESE DES IMAGES
Abstract
(EN)
An object of this invention is to provide a three-dimensional simulator capable of simulating the actual world realistically in a case where a speed and a rotational speed of an object to be displayed vary and in a case where the condition of a surface of an object to be displayed varies with a certain simulation condition, and an image synthesizing method. An image synthesizing means (200) includes a texture computation unit (230) for carrying out computation for mapping texture on an object to be displayed, and a texture information storage unit (242) for storing information on texture to be mapped. In the texture information storage unit (242), a plurality of kinds of texture information for each object to be displayed is stored. Either the kind of texture information to be mapped for an object to be displayed or information for designating the kind of texture information is altered in accordance with a speed and a rotational speed of an object to be displayed or the condition of the surface of an object to be displayed which varies in accordance with the simulation condition. This enables the reality of the simulation to be improved.

Simulateur tridimensionnel capable de reproduire le monde réel de manière réaliste lorsque la vitesse et la vitesse de rotation d'un objet à représenter varient et lorsque l'état de surface de l'objet à représenter varie selon une certaine condition de simulation. L'invention porte également sur le procédé de synthèse des images. Le dispositif (200) de synthèse d'images comporte une unité de calcul (230) de texture effectuant le calcul pour faire correspondre la texture à l'objet à représenter, et une unité de stockage (242) d'informations sur la texture mémorisant les informations de texture à représenter. L'unité de stockage (242) d'informations de texture renferme plusieurs types d'informations de texture pour chaque objet à représenter. On modifie, en fonction de la vitesse de translation ou de la vitesse de rotation de l'objet à représenter, ou encore de l'état de surface de l'objet, qui varie en fonction de la condition de simulation, soit le type d'informations de texture à représenter soit les informations désignant le type d'informations de texture. Ce système permet d'améliorer le réalisme de la simulation.
