About this opportunity


Holographic communications in extended reality (XR) allow people across the glove to communicate in a more immersive experience that traditional video meetings. Holographic communication refers to real-time capturing, encoding, transporting and rendering of 3D representations of remote users. This technology provides a real-time, detailed capture of a person’s emotions and expressions, transmitted on today’s network.


At Ericsson Research our goal is to find new and interesting technology concepts, letting you focus on your thesis work and find engaging research questions.


What you will do

The scope of the thesis project includes but not limited to:



  • Develop a thesis plan and identify research opportunities related to using geometric and semantic knowledge of the environment for optimizing the position of remote participant’s 3D representation.
  • Become acquainted with current research and prior research on environment-aware holographic communications.
  • Explore user experience effects on the usage of these technology in different communication use cases
  • Come up with new concepts and requirements for the development of future XR communications


You will bring


  • Master student in Engineering Physics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or similar.
  • Excellent analytical skills and ability to work independently
  • Interaction design and UX knowledge
  • Understanding of mesh/texture generation concepts, XR and its requirements/limitations
