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 Job website : http://perception.inrialpes.fr/offer.php3?id_offer=31 Eligibility: Applicants should hold a Msc in computer science or electronic engineering and should have good programming skills (C++). Experience in image processing and/or computer graphics are also desired.
