Tank commander mixed reality game

The premise of this project is to develop a mixed reality experience tank commander simulator, in a similar vein to War Thunder.However, the end goal is to provide a virtual reality experience tied to radio controlled tanks by mounting a 360 camera to the cupola of a 1/16 scale model tank. See this YouTube video for an example.The project will commence as an initial Unity-based VR experience, with a voice commanded model tank in VR. The intention is to lay …

Hydrophobic and anti-fogging coatings for better endoscopic imaging

Keyhole surgeries rely on the use of so-called endoscopes that are essentially camera-guided instruments. Surgeons heavily rely on the visual feedback provided by such endoscopes in performing minimally invasive surgeries. However, the image quality provided by such endoscopes is routinely compromised when body fluids and fogging occlude the lens.In this project you will explore the use of novel nanomaterial in the role of hydrophobic and anti-fogging layer towards preventing the vision loss after repeated submersions in synthetic blood and similar …

HTC Vive (VR) mixed reality kitchen training framework

There has been little research in the intellectual disability (ID) training domain to synthesise a mixed reality UI framework that assists with the provision of lifestyle training services. Such an approach, we postulate, should provide higher levels of engagement than traditional computer training, and greater integration of cognitive and physical skills knowledge to provide scalable training solutions to support skill acquisition services to large numbers of customers.In this project you will develop a mixed reality framework (utilising a HTC Vive, …

Process modelling

We’re working on problems related to managing large collections of process models, which organisations tend to create thousands of over time. For example, process model merging and versioning, searching within process models, and refactoring of a process model collection.Related publicationsvan der Aalst, Wil M.P., La Rosa, Marcello, ter Hofstede, Arthur H.M., & Wynn, Moe T.

Social media / online communities and healthcare

How do online communities provide peer support for those with chronic illness, health conditions, or undergoing recovery from substance abuse?Platforms that connect networks together unleashing latent capacity are becoming commonplace. Examples of these include the personal transportation sector with Uber and the accomodation sector with AirBnB. These sectors are being reshaped by online communities providing peer-to-peer services and co-creating value.This research will investigate the role of online communities in providing peer-to-peer services in the healthcare context. …
