Develop a framework for a VR viewer
With 80.000 talents working in 68 countries, we are one of the biggest high-tech employers in the field of safety and security. In the Netherlands, where 2000 employees are based, we are located in four cities: Huizen, Delft, Eindhoven and Hengelo (HQ). Together with an extensive ecosystem of knowledge partners, customers and suppliers, we work on radars for naval vessels, cyber security solutions, transportation systems, communication equipment for land forces, cryogenic cooling solutions, research & development for radar tech (in collaboration with TU Delft).
The Assignment is issued under the Engineering department. This department is responsible for the realization of all systems put under contract as well as product development. This assignment is part of activities in the field of training and simulation from the engineering department.
Thales is investigating Virtual Reality technology (VR) for possible use in its products. The type of Virtual Reality technology Thales uses was started by Linden labs in the VS around 2004 and resulted in the well-known application second life. Thales uses an open source version of the same technology called OpenSim. This technology is targeted for virtual training, virtual meetings , remote control and decision support.
The VR system is composed of a Server (OpenSIm) that manages the Objects in the virtual world and a client , the viewer that renders the VR Scene. We use a open source viewer. This viewer however is to complex to use and cant be tailored to the purpose the VR is used for. Work is started with other educational institution to create a more flexible viewer.
This assignment addresses the general design of the framework of the above viewer. The framework should allow flexible instantiation of the viewers whilst maintaining its performance. The work to be done is to Investigate possible designs for a framework, starting point is the design of a current viewer called alchemy. Implement a prototype of the framework refactoringthe source code of the Alchemy viewer.
Please keep in mind that we can only consider students who are enrolled at a school during the whole internship period for our internships and graduation assignments.
At Thales we provide CAREERS and not only jobs. With Thales employing 80,000 employees in 68 countries our mobility policy enables thousands of employees each year to develop their careers at home and abroad, in their existing areas of expertise or by branching out into new fields. Together we believe that embracing flexibility is a smarter way of working.
