Scientific Programmer – Sailing+

Scientific Programmer – Sailing+

Published Deadline Location
21 Jul 23 Aug Delft

Job description

This position is part of a project in collaboration with the Sailing Innovation Center (sailinginnovationcentre.nl), whose goal is to create excitement for the sailing sport by involving modern technologies. This includes the combination of video streams from drones, use of sensors and on-ship cameras, involvement of augmented and virtual reality, interactive devices, and computer graphics technology.

A sailing athlete has to consider complex information; the boat, the wind, the sea currents and more to decide how to act and react. While athletes are trained in combining these factors, for external observers, the decisions that are taken are not always clear. Further, many of the factors that went into the decision are not directly available and it is quite difficult to follow a competition without the necessary background knowledge. The goal of this project is to make the information understandable and accessible to a larger audience to improve the engagement of the observers. This step includes examining how new technology, such as augmented and virtual reality will enable a virtual presence or lead to a better understanding of the relevance of the extracted information. The work will be developed in a practical setting with strong collaboration with the sailing experts.

A short description (by an external party) of the technologies being developed in the project can be seen in the following link: https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6952244521996853249/
