OFFER DESCRIPTION

Title of the PhD project: Human-machine interaction for the engineering world

Motivation: development of applications for the construction sector through virtual reality technologies, new modes of visualization (stereoscopic and interactive screens) and handling of 3D models (evolution of the mouse), as new GUIs for other emerging technologies (digital twins, computer vision, internet of things, drones, cloud computing). The expected outcome of this work is a new framework to facilitate and automate the creation of mixed reality experiences for the AECO (Architectural, Engineering, Construction and Operations) sector, with the following components:

  1. 3D models, based on the Building Information Modelling (BIM) ecosystem (models and software), N-dimensional;
  2. ICT frameworks, communication, databases of models and objects, client/server architecture;
  3. Arts, narratives and serious games to provide sense of purpose to the engineering tools;

Specific outcomes are the following:

(a) Virtual reality learning pills;

(b) Design tools for the building industry (safety, accessibility, maintenance, operations);

(c) Plug-in to simulation programs;

(d) Link to other data sources and technologies (sensors, cameras, computer vision);

 

The functions assigned to the candidate will be:

  • Complete a PhD degree in an engineering program (ICT/Computer Science) at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya – Barcelona Tech. The candidate is expected to complete the PhD thesis in a maximum of three years.
  • Collaborate with various research groups within CIMNE and worldwide.
