Student Assistant Jobs

At LDE CEL we have several open positions for Student Assistants. See below our open vacancies. 

Student Assistant for developing a VR Kitesurf Kite Control Trainer Application

Problem: Learning to kitesurf mainly involves learning how to control the kite. Learning kite control in real life comes with several complications such as location accessibility, weather conditions, health risks and can be intimidating. Furthermore, it is not straightforward to learn the psychomotor skills to control the kite and it is essential to understand the theory since the same input movement may result in a different effect on the kite depending on the state of the kite. 

Solution: A VR kitesurf kite control trainer with a kitesurf bar (with sensors) as a controller for learning and practicing controlling the kite in virtual reality with visual feedback on kite trajectory and control inputs for students to learn more efficiently and have a very clear understanding of the fundamentals. 

Job Description: The student should help in the development of a VR application to learn to steer a kitesurf kite. This involves working with sensors on the controller (which is a kitesurf bar) and programming the application.

Background and Competencies: Programming skills (e.g. proficient in c# for development with Unity), experience with VR/AR/XR, general interest in psychomotor skill learning (such as learning to kitesurf)
Details: 6 hours a week for minimal 4-6 months, location TU Delft/online.
