PhD position at the INRIA Rhone-Alpes, France.

PhD position at the INRIA Rhone-Alpes, France. 

Description: The INRIA Rhone-Alpes has developed an experimental platform, (see also Siggraph Emerging Technologies 2007),
that produces 3D models of dynamic scenes in real time using multiple videos. The information given by such 
models allows real worlds, typically users, to be immersed into virtual worlds. Real and virtual worlds can then interact, 
from basic interactions, such as the consistent occurrence of both worlds for visualization purposes, to much deeper 
interactions where real world actions modify the virtual world. 
The project is aimed at investigating such interaction capabilities. The objective is to study their modalities and to propose 
approaches and practical algorithms to achieve the most relevant ones, pre-emption for instance. 

The candidate will be involved within 2 research teams of the INRIA Rhone-Alpes: MOAIS and PERCEPTION under the supervision  
of Bruno Raffin  and Edmond Boyer 

Keywords: 3D interactions, 3D Modeling, Camera networks, Virtual Reality
