TWNKLS is the Augmented Reality powerhouse that focuses on designing, developing and implementing cutting edge AR solutions. Our applications are used by millions of people all over the world and together with our A-list customers we have won numerous awards. Are you looking for an internship or graduation project where you can take your AR/Computer Vision knowledge to the next level? TWNKLS is the leading Dutch expert in both subjects, and as such is a great opportunity for you to develop yourself!

We believe that ambitious young developers add a lot to an already innovative organization. That’s why we need you!

What wil you be doing?

  • Assignment: You will be researching how to apply AR in an outdoor environment. To use AR outside we need to accurate determine the viewing angle and position of the user. This can be done via GPS or the camera of the user’s device. We want to use GPS to make an accurate position estimation and use the camera to make a pose estimation using Visual Inertial Odometry. This would enable AR experiences for new fields like construction
  • Team: You’ll be working closely with our Computer Vision team.
  • Research question: How can we combine GPS positioning with Visual Inertial Odometry (VIO) to enable accurate outdoor AR?
  • Tooling: You’ll be using Visual Studio and open-source libraries like OpenCV
  • Your experience: C++, computer vision, visual SLAM, (RTK-D)GPS, OpenCV
  • Extra challenge: How can you provide robust AR when either the camera or GPS temporarily doesn’t have tracking?
  • Type of assignment: Graduation internship

About TWNKLS

Coffee, fresh fruits and lunch are served by TWNKLS and cookies are provided by the ones who arrive late. After the communal lunch we like to show off our table football skills. To stay healthy some of us like to run the marathon or parts of it. Don’t worry about a dress code, we think it’s more important that you feel comfortable. Most of us are officially in their thirties, but yeah… you are as old/young as you feel. In our team we speak Russian, Portuguese, Spanish, Romanian and Dutch but to actually communicate with each other, English, C# or C++ is the business language. We work in an open office in which we also collect some famous game consoles from the past. Some of us really played the Atari 2600 when they were young. We are a flat organization, which means you can voice your opinions and we expect you to speak up if you think something can be done in a better way.
