The "Hugo" robot used in the pictures of this site was created by Laurence Boissieux (you can download the 3D model).
This work was supported in part by the "ACI Jeunes Chercheurs" CYBER of the French Ministry of Research, and by the "Région Rhône-Alpes" through the DEREVE research consortium.

Remark: All the smooth shadows pictures in this site were ray-traced using 1024 samples on the area light sources.
