Abstract

Curvature entropy can express “complexity” characteristics in a simple curve profile. A shape-generation method using curvature entropy and genetic algorithm is described. Application of this method to the design of an automobile side view showed that curvature entropy can express characteristics in a curve profile at the product level. A design-support system using curvature entropy is thus feasible.
