The DIG group is looking for a software developer to assist with a project working with Defence on Human-Machine Interface (HMI) design. If you have an interest in HMI, human factors, software architecture or performance modelling then this position may be of interest to you.
Our HMI project is exploring how we can support rapid HMI development – the problem to be solved involves the need to observe the usefulness of a HMI before the full system is completed, and full data to be visualised in the HMI is available. This project will explore the development of appropriate architectures and HMI development frameworks to support the rapid development of a HMI prototype system which can then be integrated with simulation and/or performance modelling information available from system execution modelling environments. Some of the interesting issues to be addressed in this project are:
• The development of a generic HMI component model, identifying what common kinds of HMI components are necessary within the defence domain and how these should be modelled.
• Appropriate software architectures for integrating prototype HMI systems with a distributed system execution modelling environment.
• Using open source UI tools and environments to support UI prototyping.
We are seeking a software developer to assist with this project, specifically in the design and construction of a HMI prototyping framework using open source UI tools. You will need to have strong software development skills, and experience/interest in Eclipse framework development, UI design or other open source UI tools would be an advantage.
This 6 month position is available immediately, and may be full-time or part-time based on availability.
If you are interested in this position please contact Katrina Falkner for further information.
