About the Project

The project aims to establish a framework for abstracting real-world data and linking semantics with a software development engine for authoring context-aware Augmented Reality (AR) applications. This match-funded PhD project between Bournemouth University (academic partner) and Phantom Technology Ltd. (industry partner) will investigate various state-of-the-art semantic labelling methodologies to segment point datasets into meaningful scene and object classifications. The goal for this project is to enhance the development process for authoring context-aware mobile AR applications, by exploring methods of accounting for real-world uncertainties using data modalities provided by the proprietary software developed by Phantom Technology. 

This is a fully-funded PhD studentship which includes a stipend of £15,450 each year to support your living costs.

This project is conditional upon the funding being secured.

The closing date for applications is 31st October 2021.
