    Type of employment

    Full-time (part-time possible)

    In DLR’s institute for Software Technology, an open source Virtual-Reality simulation of our Solar System is being developed. With sophisticated level-of-detail-algorithms, high resolution digital elevation models and satellite imagery, entire planets and space missions can be explored in real-time. Light and shadow play an important role in realistic space simulations. However, conventional approaches such as cascaded shadow maps are not suitable for many scenarios.

    In the scope of this thesis, a survey on existing screen-space soft shadow (SSSS) algorithms shall be performed, taking into account the specially demands optimization opportunities of 2.5D terrain rendering. The most promising algorithm(s) will be implemented and optimized for this special use-case. Finally, tests and benchmarks shall prove the efficiency of the implementation and the limitations of the approach shall be discussed in detail.

    • Computer Science student or similar
    • good programming skills with C++, OpenGL and GLSL
    • experience in working with HTML, CSS and JavaScript is a plus
    • preferably experience in working with Linux

    Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development.
