Organization Overview

The School of Technology, Environments and Design (TED) at University of Tasmania is a science, technology and design enterprise of global reach and relevance, integrating social and physical sciences, and underpinned by systematic and technology supported innovation and design. It is a vibrant center for world-class research and learning and teaching on the interactions between, and understanding of, human and the natural, built and digital environments.

The school capitalizes on the distinctive culture and ecology of Tasmania’s island laboratory, bringing together expertise in architecture and design, information and communication technology, physical and human geography, and surveying and spatial sciences. Sustainable regional development, urban livability, Earth observations, and habitat conservation are some of our core focus areas.

Intern Responsibilities:

Internship Project: Visualising Real Landscapes in an Augmented Reality Sandbox
Augmented Reality Sandboxes have become an effective teaching, communication and marketing tool across a diverse set of domains. This technology, based on an Xbox Kinect, high performance graphics card and a data projector allows measurement and rendering of sand surface elevation models and realistic water flow in near real time. This project seeks to further develop the open source code made available by UC Davis and extend it across a number of domains making it even more useful in teaching and marketing. Ideas include retrieval and overlay of satellite or airborne imagery over the sandbox considering the geometry of the sand, modification of the water flow to consider glacier flow, and consideration of virtual cities and other built infrastructure.

IIP interns must have skills in linux, high levels of c++ or similar programming.
