Psychophysics: linking physical and psychological function - ENG 1358


Faculty of Engineering

Applications accepted all year round Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

About the Project

The visual properties of architectural surfaces are often assessed by stakeholders using subjective and inconsistent methods. A large manufacturing company, has been working with the Manufacturing Metrology Team (MMT) to identify suitable surface measurement solutions for the acquisition and analysis of texture data for such applications, and to research any correlations with psychophysical measurements of such surfaces, acquired using established methods involving customer focus groups. This project aims to deliver an instrument and analysis approach which will determine the aspects of surface texture correlate to those aspects of surface texture which are meaningful to human visual perception. There is scope to apply machine learning approaches to the data analysis pipeline.

The project will be supervised by Professor Richard Leach, from the MMT, see http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/research/manufacturing-metrology. MMT is an international and diverse team that thrives on openness and coopertation – students work in teams to achieve joint goals in a friendly but professional cohort.
