PhD scholarship - Hand-held projection and measurement system for surgical interventions

Posted by: Institut für Mechatronische Systeme, Leibniz Uni Hannover

Posted date: May-12-2016

Location: Hannover, Germany

This job offer refers to the PhD-project B5 of Tailored Light, which will be conducted at the Institute of Mechatronic Systems, Leibniz Universität Hannover. Tailored Light is a coordinated PhD-programme of the Hanover Centre for Optical Technologies from the Leibniz Universität Hannover together with the Hochschule Hannover, the Laser Zentrum Hannover, the HAWK Hildesheim/ Holzminden/ Göttingen, the TU Braunschweig and the TU Clausthal. The PhD-scholarship consist of 1500 Euro per month (1400 Euro + 100 Euro material costs) for a total of 36 month. Please apply until May, 31st 2016 here: http://www.tailored-light.uni-hannover.d e/application.html

Augmented reality is an emerging research domain that permeates our daily life. Virtual objects are fused with the real environment thus a mixed perception occurs. Prominent examples are overlaid lines in sports broadcast or the park assist feature visualized into rear view cameras of cars. Tailored light by hand-held projector-based augmented reality enables new visualization concepts, e.g. to assist surgeons in future interventions. A small-sized video or laser projector will directly illuminate or shade important structures. First tests in laboratory environments and the operating room with projector-based reality have demonstrated promising results, but challenges with deformable organs, view-angle dependent visualization of sub-surface structures as well as powerful and spectral-optimized illumination remain unsolved. Furthermore, human-machine interaction in terms of gesture control, projected buttons or sliders as well as (self-) localization, real-time measurement and mapping for those new systems have not been solved ideally. This PhD-project will address these challenges and advance the state of the art towards time-, spatial-, spectral-optimized hand-held projector-based augmented reality.

The ideal candidate will have a very good master degree and strong background in one or more of these areas: Optical technologies, image processing, computer vision and graphics, human-machine interaction, real-time computing, mixed reality, computer- and robot-assisted surgery.
