Student internship position available at Philips

We are looking for a student who likes to do an internship or Master's project at Philips Research Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The assignment includes a study of literature and existing standards, and design and validation of (XML) description formats to describe haptic stimuli and effects. The description includes effect patterns (i.e. changing over time and space) and location of where these impact the human body. A software implementation will be made that shows how the data format can be used to drive haptics devices (that are available in our lab) in an efficient manner. This software should be connected to the Second Life client (e.g. directly integrated or through GridProxyApp) to demonstrate how these effects really work in a virtual world.
