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. This includes the entire process from ideation, to research, prioritisation and execution. These prototypes will be in the form of a portable wearable wristband device that gathers and processes signals based on 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 multimodal biometric sensing, as well as tailoring your sensor designs to be optimised for specific types of signals that are of interest to the augmented reality domain.
At its core, you will be developing quick and dirty proof of concept prototypes, non-invasive wearable electronics, various sensor configurations and signal processing pipelines.
Additionally you will work closely with the rest of your team on these multi-sensor wristbands as well as working closely with our interaction designers to understand the design requirements and constraints of various augmented reality users.
Delivering numerous biometric proof of concepts with our team by rapid iteration.
Making Prototypes and Circuit Designs for portable and wearable biometric devices.
Communicating findings, uncertainties, and properties of the biometric properties of the human body.
Things we would value from you
Experience with designing and selecting sensors and transmitters spanning a wide frequency spectrum. 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 sensor.
Fluency with the signal processing, sensor fusion, signal source localisation, filtering, etc.
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!
