The Medical Robotics group at Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) 
has an opening for a PhD position in surgical robotics.

The Thesis /Automatic handsfree visualization of a 6 DoF agent within a 
complex anatomical space / will be held in the frame of the Marie Curie 
project ATLAS (Autonomous Intraluminal Surgery) https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__atlas-2Ditn.eu_&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=Vj58XRJkACQ4mIoMgA3oSpAXVgECjo3BxjVQIVZLR5c&s=plgHdBw2Mio556JAd2ek3seR0KE86M0cNNpMneD_Et8&e=

Where ATLAS develops technology to steer flexible instruments through 
lumens, this Thesis develops an intuitive graphical interface (GUI) to 
supervise this execution.

The goal of the Thesis is the design and development of the user's 
interface which implies understanding all the intervention and technical 
aspects of the systems involved with the interface (robot, vision, ...) 
and interacting with all parts. It requires acquiring data from other 
systems (camera, other equipment, ...) and visualize in the appropriate 
way all the required information. This implies dealing with computer 
communication, different software packages, libraries,  ... and deal 
with the images to be shown from the adequate perspective, in the 
adequate reference axes, also with the surgeon mental workload so as to 
facilitate the context understanding.

The work will require expertise in using libraries like OpenGL, OpenCV, 
PhysX  and programming environments like Visual C++ i QT, as well as 
interacting with surgeons to perceive their needs.

thesis, the candidates requirements and the application procedure.
