Design Guidelines for Musemedia – multiple sensorial media
Mulsemedia - multiple sensorial media - makes possible the inclusion of layered sensory stimulation and interaction through multiple sensory channels. The recent upsurge in technology and wearables provides mulsemedia researchers a vehicle for potentially boundless choice. However, in order to build systems that integrate various senses, there are still some issues that need to be addressed. One of these is that of design guidelines, which need to be further developed. Given the diversity of multisensory technologies and experiences, we expect these to be centred around paradigms that can propose ways to work with mulsemedia content and which can be applied to multiple devices in a class and the PhD will focus on exploring and identifying best practices in working with multisensory digital content.
This is a self funded project
Brunel offers a number of funding options to research students that help cover the cost of their tuition fees, contribute to living expenses or both. See more information here: https://www.brunel.ac.uk/research/Research-degrees/Research-degree-funding. Recently the UK Government made available the Doctoral Student Loans of up to £25,000 for UK and EU students and there is some funding available through the Research Councils. Many of our international students benefit from funding provided by their governments or employers. Brunel alumni enjoy tuition fee discounts of 15%.)
