Contract type: Internship
Duration: 6 months during Spring/Summer 2018
The "Environmental Research and Innovation" (ERIN) department of LIST has an opening for an Intern position. The intern will be integrated in the e-Science unit, which focuses on data analytics & visualization and their applications.
Climate change is foreseen to cause an increasing number of extreme events. In addition, the population is nowadays very sensitive to various types of pollution due to human activities. Managing environmental disasters such as flooding, biological or chemical damage is a complex task which requires a sound level of situational awareness. This internship project will focus on using augmented reality technologies to assist those managing an environmental disaster, with a particular emphasis on information visualisation in a multi-user setting.
The intern will focus on developing new augmented reality interfaces for a chosen scenario which will leverage an existing platform developed at LIST. The project will involve software and hardware engineering challenges, alongside more research oriented topics such as visualisation and situational awareness.
The e-Science unit has a number of Horizon 2020 projects with partners from across Europe working on related topics. Therefore the intern will have the opportunity to work alongside international partners from these projects.
