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.
During the course of this PhD, the solutions will be integrated with the PhantomEngine software development kit (SDK), as part of Phantom Technology’s proprietary AR engine. AR prototypes will be developed to test the efficacy of the solutions composed and will be integrated with mobile AR gaming projects (developed by Phantom Technology’s current industrial partners) with a potential of reaching commercial users.
The student will be in a vibrant academic environment which will be stimulating both in terms of the research work to be carried but also on a social level.
