Two Open PhD Positions with the Computer Graphics and Virtual Reality Group Bremen
Salary is according to the German Federal pay scale (TV-L 13, full time).
The work in this position will be carried out within the SFB “EASE – Everyday Activity Science and Engineering” (funded by the DFG), which is to perform fundamental research to enable robots to do human everyday activities, such as setting a table or loading a dish washer.
One strand of research of the CGVR lab in this endeavor is to develop algorithms such that robots can “envision” the outcomes of their tentative plans by simulating the real world around them before they actually follow through with their plan. This requires novel methods for faster-than-realtime physically-based simulation and the development of predicates in order to evaluate the outcomes.
In another strand, we will deal specifically with the challenge of grasping. Here, the task is to develop novel methods such that a human user can grasp virtual objects using a virtual hand with high simulation fidelity and high dexterity. The goal is to allow humans to interact with virtual objects just like in real live, and to study their grasping behaviors under a large variety of scenarios and parameters.
