In order to monitor the behavior of a simulated group of individuals (eg visitors to a major event like a music festival) it is necessary to display diagnostic information about the 3D representation of a scene. This diagnostic information contains statistics for each individual (eg heart rate), per location (eg temperature or decibels), and global information (time, specific events). We seek a masters student for designing and implementing the per-individual information or per-site information. Initially the visualization tool allows a pre-computed animation to be played in 3D, but ultimately we want real-time simulations of diagnostic information. Since groups of individuals are large and both the 3D camera position as the choice of diagnostic information can be set interactively by the user, the diagnostic visualization needs to be generated in real time by a 3D rendering engine (may be combined 2D overlay). This assignment is restricted to the visualization of diagnostic information. The 3D rendering engine and simulation component are developed within European Design Centre (EDC). The graduate student should have experience in C++ and real-time 3D graphics and would begin in February or March.
