iPREP WA Round 4 2020
iPREP WA and Innovation Central Perth have teamed up for this unique round to host two PhD student teams with Woodside & BHP
The iPREP WA Round with Innovation Central Perth is fast approaching with the program officially running from the 2nd November to the 18th December 2020.
The student application closing date is 19th October 2020 and successful students will be notified to attend a first-stage induction on 23rd October 2020. Each student will have the chance to give a one-minute to pitch to industry mentors. Following this session, there will be an opportunity to network with the industry partners.
Industry partners will choose a team based on the students’ application, one-minute pitch and who they think will fit into their organisation and team dynamics.
Students will be notified on the outcome of their application to attend the second-stage induction and team meeting at Innovation Central Perth by the 28th October 2020.

Current iPREP WA Projects:
Project Title: Volumetric Video Streaming and Holographic Playback from a Robotic Platform
Woodside is developing approaches to provide remote situational awareness for improved remote operations capability. This includes the development of an immersive digital twin and integration of robotics and IoT along with analytics. The project challenge is to develop a proof of concept solution that allows for streaming and recording of volumetric video from a robotic platform. Playback will be done in AR and or VR.
The PhD student team will be part of, and guided by, an industry-research team including Woodside supervisors, Prof Iain Murray from Curtin University, and Cisco Solutions Engineers.
Desired Skill Set:
- AI/Machine perception
- Computer system engineering
Project Title: Measuring Residual Impact on Biodiversity Values
BHP wish to investigate options for development of a framework to measure no net loss (including where like for like is not available) to biodiversity values from mining.
The PhD student team will be part of, and guided by, an industry-research team including BHP supervisors, Prof Stephen van Leeuwen from Curtin University, and Cisco Solutions Engineers.
Desired Skill Set:
- Environmental science
- Water science
- Spatial and remote sensing
- Data science
