Port 6's goal is to build the leading augmented reality interaction laboratory in Europe over the next year. A time machine over and into the next leap in human cognition since the invention of the personal computer.
You will be working in our biometrics laboratory prototyping novel sensor and signal processing architectures in the acoustics domain. This includes the entire process from ideation, to research, prioritization and execution. These prototypes will be in the form of a portable wearable wristband device that gathers and processes sound based information from the air, skin, and internal tissue of the human body.
Part of this work involves searching and understanding research papers at the forefront of bioacoustics, as well as tailoring your sensor designs to be optimized for specific types of sounds that are of interest to the augmented reality interaction domain.
At its core, you will be developing quick and dirty proofs of concepts, non-invasive wearable electronics, various microphone sensor configurations and signal processing pipelines.
Additionally you will work closely with the rest of your team to design wristbands that include more than just acoustic sensors. You will also work closely with our interaction designers to understand the design requirements and constraints of a typical AR user directly implemented into amazing AR experiences.
Delivering numerous biometric proof of concepts with our team by rapid iteration.
Making Prototypes and Circuit Designs for portable and wearable bioacoustic devices.
Communicating findings, uncertainties, and properties of your work.
Things we would value from you
Experience with designing and selecting sound sensors and transmitters spanning a wide frequency spectrum from vibration transducers to bone conduction speakers. This includes both single sensing units as well as sensing arrays of multiple units.
Prior work involving sensors placed in various mediums and command over the physics of wave propagation across mediums such as from the human skin to a microphone.
Fluency with the signal processing, sensor fusion, sound localisation and 3D spatial filtering that come with the acoustic data from these sensor configurations.
Confidence in turning quick and dirty lab proofs of concepts to well packaged, low power circuit boards.
Excellent communication skills in English
If you love creating extremely cool stuff, we'd love to see your application!
