Project Mobile human-computer interaction for commissioning and controlling of automated guided vehicles (MobiMMI)

The project

The use of automated guided vehicles (AGV) is characterized by a high degree of automation and high efficiency. At the same time, critical operating situations often cause problems that the AGVs cannot solve on their own, thereby significantly reducing the cost-effectiveness of these systems.

The aim of the MobiMMI project is the development of a multimodal assistance system to overcome these inefficient vulnerabilities in the use of AGVs. The assistance system is based on Smartglasses, which enable employees to control the AGVs using augmented reality. As a result, a member of staff can intervene selectively in operations and solve critical operating situations quickly and easily.

Your tasks

As part of this project, various applications for human-machine interaction are being developed. All applications should be compatible with the data glasses HoloLens (and HoloLens 2) and have interfaces to mobile robots. The programming of these applications should only be done with Unity, ROS and / or C / C #. Support is sought for the development of these applications.

The following subtasks belong to this activity:

  • If necessary, training in e.g. Unity, ROS or C #
  • If necessary, literature research in the areas of image processing, augmented reality or machine learning
  • Support in the development and programming of applications
  • Test of applications
  • Support for other research projects

Your profile

You study one of the following subjects:

  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • etc.

You are interested in Augmented Reality and Machine Learning.
In addition, you have knowledge in programming with C#, Unity or ROS.
Good knowledge of German and English in spoken and written is desirable.

We offer

  • reasonable payment
  • independent working
  • flexible working hours
  • well-equipped jobs
