Master Student Internship in Personalization and Augmented Reality for a Smart City Visitor Guide (M/F) The successful candidate will join the ADAPT research group, which focuses on Knowledge-based Context-Aware Adaptive Systems. She/he will integrated in the research group, working with the Group Leader and the Engineer responsible of the mobile app. The internship will take place at the premises of LIST in the “Maison de l’Innovation” situated in Esch/Alzette, Luxembourg.
In the context of a European research project (www.crosscult.eu), we have developed a mobile app and web applications for the design, discovery and sharing of geo-localised points of interests (POI). The mobile app is designed like a game where users can walk from a POI to another, discovering stories about places, buildings or parts of their environment, can like or comment POIs and even create their own POIs that they can share with other users. The goal of the traineeship will be to enhance the mobile app ecosystem, so that they support 1) automated personalization features, including for example user profiling and recommendation of POIs to see or stories/comments to read; and 2) Augmented Reality features, to transform the user experience. This will be realized following an experimental approach where developed features have to be systematically evaluated in real settings with users. The user studies will be used to assess the usefulness of the new features and their impact on the user experience. The project involves: 1) programming the new features with state of the art solutions (a small state of the art survey might be asked); 2) testing with users and leading questionnaire-based interviews to gather user feedback on user experience; and 3) analyzing the user survey to conclude on features’ usefulness and impact on user experience. ]]>

Master Student Internship: Développement d'un prototype logiciel d'aide à la planification dans le domaine de la construction (M/F)
  • la maquette numérique du bâtiment ;
  • le chantier connecté ;
  • le bâtiment intelligent.
  • Dans le cadre de l'axe relatif au chantier connecté, les travaux de recherche menés par le groupe DBEM visent à améliorer la gestion opérationnelle de chantier et portent sur différents aspects :
    • la collaboration et le management visuel pour planifier la phase de construction ;
    • la maquette numérique du bâtiment pour supporter la décision lors de la phase de construction ;
    • l’Internet of Things (IoT) pour monitorer le chantier et objectiver les décisions lors de la phase de construction.

    La coordination et le pilotage de la phase de réalisation des projets de construction est traditionnellement une source importante de difficultés. La diversité des intervenants, la multiplicité des techniques employées et la complexité grandissante des ouvrages, rendent difficile la collaboration entre les équipes en charge de leur réalisation. Initialement développé par l’industrie automobile pour améliorer la performance de ses chaines de production, le lean construction, ou « construction sans gaspillage » est une philosophie de travail dont l’objectif est de créer de la valeur pour les clients de manière durable, via l’amélioration de l’ensemble des processus d’un projet de construction.
    Parmi les méthodes employées le « Last Planner® System » ou LPS est une approche visant à fiabiliser le délai de réalisation à travers un travail systématique de planification grâce et pour les différents acteurs d’un projet. Conçue pour être collaborative, elle exige l’implication de tous les acteurs du chantier et applique les préceptes du Visual Management pour assurer la communication entre les corps de métier.  Depuis plusieurs années et au travers de cas d’étude concrets, le LIST déploie et teste cette méthode basée sur l’utilisation de post-it permettant d’identifier et de partager les tâches à réaliser, en les agençant de manière structurée sur des panneaux physiques. Conçus et positionnés de manière collaborative par l’ensemble des parties prenantes au projet, ils permettent de préciser leur granularité, d’identifier leurs pré-requis (organisationnels, humains, matériel, etc.), et de produire différents niveaux de planification pour assurer la gestion opérationnelle du chantier. Se basant sur un ensemble de scénarios de planification déployés sur un logiciel de Visual Management propriétaire gérant la couche graphique de manipulation des post-it, le travail consistera à concevoir et développer en javascript un proof of concept graphiquement similaire, mais offrant des possibilités algorithmiques supplémentaires, vecteurs d’innovation et d’améliorations fonctionnelles. A visée démonstrative, cette application permettra aux spécialistes métiers d’identifier et de tester les nouvelles fonctionnalités (traitement de données, règles métier) utiles au déroulement de la méthode, en vue de les intégrer au cahier des charges de la future release. Au sein du groupe de Recherche DBEM (Digital Build Environment Management) et en partie rattaché à l’équipe chargée des réalisations IT du Département, le stagiaire mettra à profit ses connaissances en développement full-stack intégrant plusieurs technologies. Outre l’utilisation des derniers frameworks javascript, il pourra également approfondir ses connaissances en conception d’architectures logicielles et bénéficier d’une première expérience de développement en lien direct avec des professionnels du secteur de la construction. ]]>

    Master Student Internship in Graphical Interface for a composite material software (M/F) Heterogeneous composite material consists of a matrix filled with one or several heterogeneities to enhance its intrinsic properties (mechanical, electrical, thermal, etc.). Composite with desired properties can be achieved simply by controlling the distribution, shape and orientation of the heterogeneities within the matrix. LIST researchers have created a toolbox combining imaging tools and techniques with numerical mechanics methods to virtually create composite materials with tailored physical and mechanical properties. The programming was done in Python and a rudimentary graphical interface was realized with the module Tkinter. The Mahotas and Mayavi libraries are used for image analysis and visualization. The student will develop a user-friendly graphical interface. Visualization of 3D objects will therefore be an important aspect of the work. Project plan:
    • Task1: Understand the existing structural scheme of the python code towards possible reorganization of the code structure (1 month)
    • Task2: Develop a user-friendly graphical interface (4 months)
    • Task3: Final report
    Expected outcomes:
    • Student will get familiar with advanced methods for software graphical interfaces development and visualization tools
    • User-friendly graphical interface

    Master Student Internship in Nanowires density calculation based on SEM pictures: basic approach and automated processing with image processing software (M/F) Silver nanowires (Ag NWs) networks are emerging as one of the most promising alternatives to indium tin oxide (ITO) for transparent electrodes in flexible electronic devices. They can be used in a variety of optoelectronic applications such as solar cells, touch panels and organic light emitting diodes. Ag NWs are cheaper to fabricate than ITO and can be fast deposited as networks with spray method. In order to understand the effect of spray parameters on Ag NWs networks conductivity and transparency, the NWs density has to be determined thanks to scanning electron microscopy image analysis

    The goal of this internship will be to investigate computer and mathematical methods to determined Ag NWs density with aspect ratio (AR) above 1000 (AR=L/D where L is NWs length and D is NWs diameter), where a challenge occurs when considering interconnected NWs. The trainee will start by analysing existing plugins for the Image J image processing software, as well as modifying existing plugins and programming automated processing routines. He/she will also investigate mathematical approaches based on the NWs geometry in order to simplify the programming challenges.
