    Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

Stable and accurate object registration is a core technique that underpins augmented reality (AR) technology. AR technology has many critical applications in entertainment, health and engineering industries. One of the unmet challenges in AR is stable and accurate virtual-real object registration. AR registration involves real-time 3D reconstruction and point cloud matching. Achieving accurate object registration is a task of intricately balancing computation between 3D object reconstruction quality, speed, spatial scale and scene understanding.

This project develops novel AR registration algorithms for challenge applications, where large scenes are the most difficult to capture and hard to reconstruct in real-time. The research student will study efficient algorithms to robustly handle scene motions or reconstructions. By developing a computational framework, the researcher will extend the scape of applications into augmented reality games.

How to apply:

Applications are made via our website using the Apply Online button below. If you have an enquiry about this project please contact us via the Email NOW button below, however your application will only be processed once you have submitted an application form as opposed to emailing your CV to us.

Candidates for funded PhD studentship must demonstrate outstanding qualities and be motivated to complete a PhD in 3 years.

The PhD Studentships are open to UK, EU and international students. Candidates for a PhD Studentship should demonstrate outstanding qualities and be motivated to complete a PhD in 3 years and must demonstrate:

• A 1st class honours degree and/or a relevant Master’s degree with distinction or equivalent. If English is not your first language you’ll need IELTS (Academic) score of 6.5 minimum (with a minimum 6.0 in each component).

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Candidate should have a computer science or related engineering degree.

Funding Notes

Funded candidates will receive a maintenance grant of £15,000 per year to contribute towards living expenses during the course of your research, as well as a fee waiver for 36 months.

Funded Studentships are open to both UK/EU and International students unless otherwise specified.
