VR Surgical Simulator

A full surgery simulated in VR, including connected tools for haptic feedback.

The goal was to deliver a high-fidelity app exclusively designed for the client, a major global medtech, for them to provide relevant training to surgeons willing to use their medical kits.

I was in charge of developing 75% of the surgical acts (45 minutes of content) and the calibration algorithms for reconciling the real and virtual worlds—mixed reality. The team was composed of up to four developers working with the Scrum methodology.

Avatar Simulation Tool
A VR/3D simulation tool for aircraft assembly lines. With this digital twin, industrial architects can visualize factory flows, preview saturated zones, and analyze ergonomic issues.

Started the project as the only developer, and the team grew to 5-6 developers. I was in charge of the architecture and orchestrated the development sprints using the Scrum methodology.

Although the project is confidential, the enclosed URL provides you with an article (in French) about the project, its regional associates, and its transnational funding.
