- Job description

Internship interactive platformer– Heerlen

Transform the world around you by unleashing your skills and crafting the next generation of technology. Put your expertise to work as part of the world’s largest independent technology services provider and lead the way as a trendsetter in your digital field. We’re ready if you are. 

Your impact
The goal of this internship is to create a platformer ‘game’ which reacts to a user’s movements. Metawear chips will be attached to the user’s wrist and ankle. When the user moves these body parts in a certain manner, the actions will be reflected in the game.

To achieve this, the sensors need to connect to the application and its input needs to be dynamically processed using a Machine Learning solution. Moreover, since every user is different, a calibration (learning) stage needs to be implemented. The types of ‘moves’ the user can make is completely up to you. Examples are jumping, punching, kicking, etc. Use your imagination! 

The game itself is of little importance and mainly serves as an interface for the underlaying technologies, although a fun factor is most definitely recommended!

As an optional extension of this internship, together with another intern, you can couple this application together with Pepper (the robot) where she reacts to the user’s actions as well!

During this internship, you will be working with:

1. Metawear sensors
2. Unity (mobile app development)
3. UX design
4. Machine Learning
