KCRG-TV, Cedar Rapids, IA, recently reported on how the Virtual Soldier Research Program at the UI Center for Computer-Aided Design has been working for more than a decade to perfect its robotics research and how the next step in using this artificial intelligence is the ability to predict a wound before the injury happens.

The Virtual Soldier Research Program conducts basic and applied research and development in the field of human modeling and simulation. The research is aimed at creating interactive, intelligent, and predictive human models that operate in virtual, physics-based environments. The product from this research is called Santos, a human simulator that is widely used by the US military and industry partners. It is the only physics-based human simulator.
