CERN Interactive Tunnel inspection

Warning message

You must login to view this form.

The project aims at putting the public is in the shoes of a LHC tunnel inspection robot operator :

* Use a simulator to program an inspection
* Program a "HiCAT Livera" robot to send it for inspection
* Hunt for abnormalities around the tunnel in augmented reality in a first-person view

The final result will be featured during the next CERN Open days.

Education
Contacts: 
Skills Being Sought: 

3D graphics skills (ThreeJS / Blender)
Image processing (OpenCV, AR)
Software skills (python / Java)
Hardware skills (robotics / arduino)

Weekend Goals: 

* Provide an immersive LHC Tunnel inspection experience prototype
* Have tons of fun and discover Three JS / Python / robots

References and Background Material: 

* The project reuses work done during the Cineglobe SHADOW THEATER workshop :
** the simulator exists already ( https://github.com/CMCRobotics/cineglobe-shadow-theater )
** the Python hardware abstract layer also ( https://github.com/CMCRobotics/drivar)

Prerequisites: 
3D modelling / ThreeJS / Web Development (for the 3D simulator) Java / Python development Raspberry Pi / Linux / Arduino (for the robot hardware)
