Software Engineer – Mixed Reality (XR) Unity
Brisbane QLD, Australia
About the role
We are looking for a self-motivated software developer with a passion for VR and 3D skills and would like to apply their skills to real-world scenarios and is prepared to learn a few things along the way. This role will allow the lucky successful applicant a good level of autonomy and you should be able to use your initiative to come up with great ideas to show off the things that we do. You should be able to take instruction. Our main business is the delivery of online building and emergency evacuation training and the production of printed evacuation signs mounted in most buildings indicating the nearest escape pathway. We have transformed our business and the way that we provide these services to our clients through a high degree of technological innovation. We have developed a floorplan drawing package that we think is simply the best. No longer do we create an image, print it, rotate it, print again etc … we now capture all the information that is required in our custom microservices as structured data allowing us to create renderings of buildings and the assets within them in new ways. Virtual Reality at Locatrix This is not a games company, but we are using the technologies and have developed a project using Unity that can connect to our plan service and will render building floor plans in 3D. In our dedicated VR room on our Wireless Vive or Samsung Odyssey VR headset we can interact with the simulated environment. From here we have dreams of creating challenging training scenarios that for example allow a building warden to practice an evacuation more than just once a year. We also have a scenario generator with a browser based (WebGL) isometric view showing the executing scenario in different buildings. Moving forward we are hoping to create a synthetic environment that allows for connected simulators which can be observed in the virtual buildings. We will be building these simulators as research and development projects to show off the value of our floorplans and investigate new ways to create revenue streams for Locatrix.
