    Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

This project will concern application of virtual/augmented reality to support collaborative product development. The research will build on existing work at the university of Auckland to investigate how advanced design information can be attached to CAD models, can be communicated using VR/AR, and can be used to inform decisions during the design process. The ultimate objective is to support collaboration and reduce unnecessary design rework, especially in large and geographically distributed projects.

The student will join the design and development research group at the University of Auckland, where a number of PhD students are working on related topics.
