Graphics Warping/Blending for High-fidelity Driving Simulation

Create a new graphics framework for high-fidelity driving simulation .

Seeking an Engineering student to design a new computational framework to warp and blend driving simulator screen graphics.

Project description

We require the services of an ambitious engineering student to design a new computational framework to warp and blend our driving simulator screen graphics. Student will use Nvidia's NVAPI to accomplish warping and blending calculations directly on the graphics card, using C/C++.
