Mixed Reality Robot Teleoperation with Hololens 2 – Internship Position


Start date: Open

Location: Leoben

Job Type: Internship

Duration: 3-6 months, depending on the level of applicant’s proficiency on the asked qualifications.

Keywords: Mixed Reality, Augmented Reality, Unity 3D, Robotic Manipulators, ROS 2, Hololens 2.


Job Description

The Mixed Reality (AR) interface for intuitive programming of robotic manipulators project is a unique opportunity to work on cutting-edge research in the field of robotics and mixed reality. This project aims to create an intuitive programming interface for robotic manipulators using Unity 3D and ROS 2 robotic framework.

By participating in this internship, you will gain valuable skills in mixed reality development, robotics, and software engineering, and contribute to a project with the potential to revolutionize the way we program and control robotic manipulators.

Note: This project is also offered under the Integrated CPS project course or as B.Sc or M.Sc. Thesis


As an intern, you will work on developing a mixed reality (AR) interface using Unity 3D that enables intuitive programming of robotic manipulators. You will work on integrating this interface with the ROS 2 robotic framework to control a robotic manipulator (UR3).

This internship will give you hands-on experience in developing mixed reality applications and working with robotics hardware. You will collaborate with a supportive team of researchers and engineers to solve challenging problems in mixed reality and robotics. You will also have the opportunity to learn about the unique challenges and opportunities involved in creating innovative and intuitive interfaces for programming robotic systems.


  • Currently pursuing a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or related fields.
  • Strong programming skills in C# and Unity 3D
  • Familiarity with ROS or other robotic frameworks
  • Knowledge of 3D modeling and animation
  • Experience with mixed reality development and programming
  • Good written and verbal communication skills in English.
  • Passion for creating innovative and intuitive interfaces for programming robotic systems
  • Experience in working on research projects or coursework related to robotics or mixed reality is a plus

Opportunities and Benefits of the Internship

This internship provides an excellent opportunity to gain hands-on experience in cutting-edge research on unsupervised learning for few-shot learning, working with a highly collaborative and supportive team. The intern will also have the opportunity to co-author research papers and technical reports, and participate in conferences and workshops.
