PhD position in Motion Tracking and Augmented Reality (deadline February 28, 2022)
Imec-IPI is looking for a qualified and motivated PhD student to work on the topic of Motion Tracking and Augmented Reality. This PhD research is part of a larger research effort, the "HoloWrist" project, which has been undertaken with the University of Leuven and the MoRe Orthopedic Institute. The developed motion tracking and augmented reality system will be combined with new ultrasound imaging techniques in order to track the position and pose of the scaphoid bone during surgery. If successful, the use of ionizing radiation during the surgery could be greatly reduced or possibly completely removed. One fully funded position as PhD student is available (4 years, with intermediate evaluation after one year).
Background: The scaphoid bone is the most frequently fractured bone in the wrist, accounting for around 90% of all carpal fractures. These fractures commonly occur in young adults as a result of falling onto an outstretched hand.
PhD position in Multi-camera algorithms and 3D reconstruction for construction site monitoring (deadline February 1, 2022)
Imec-IPI is looking for a qualified and motivated PhD student to work on a new imec.ICON project on the topic of multi-camera algorithms and 3D reconstruction for construction site monitoring. One fully funded position as PhD student is available (4 years, with intermediate evaluation after one year).
You will contribute as researcher to the project "BIM on Building site" (BoB), funded by imec. This project is an interdisciplinary research project involving the research groups imec-IDLab and imec-IPI both from the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture and the companies Balloon Inc., D-studio, Willemen and Dethier. The BoB project aims to reduce the cost-overruns in the construction sector by providing a cost-efficient scalable solution for automated monitoring of construction sites by creating a link between real-time on-site progress data and building information models (BIM). The on-site progress will be captured using novel algorithms for 3D matching between video and 3D BIM data, combined with recognition of collective activities to obtain more fine-grained insight in the construction process (e.
