Sony-Oxford Brookes KTP Research Fellow

Sony KTP Research Fellow
School of Technology
Reference: 157/16013/KL

Salary: 25 - 35,000 dependant on experience

The Sony EyeToy was launched onto the video games market three years ago. Since then, it has found its way into over 8 million homes worldwide. Using a small video camera plugged into a PlayStation, it tracks the player's motion, allowing them to play games by moving their bodies rather than using a controller.

A DTI funded Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) has been awarded to Sony Entertainment Europe and Oxford Brookes University for two years. The starting date would ideally be between May and August 2007. The research program is aimed at transferring recent results in the academic community into gaming experience for camera based games.

The main responsibility of the post holder will be to support research in machine learning and computer vision methods and algorithms for a variety of problems in the project including:
 Human motion analysis
 Interactive computer games
