Start date: flexibleDuration: minimum three months, maximum negotiableOur group studies a wide range of topics utilizing modular robots, especially with (but not limited to) endeffectors (e.g. robot hands). We currently have several open student positions in the following areas: * Robot endeffector manipulation strategies * Robot mechanism design for rapid reconfiguration of modular robot components * Force-feedback telemanipulation * System Identification * Controller tuning and design for modular robot grasp and manipulation * Robot hand sensor fusion * Visual servo for robot manipulation * Task-driven robot planning and architectureWe are looking for candidates in the area of Engineering, Computer Science (Informatics), Physics, or a related field. You should have some, but not necessarily all, of the following abilities and knowledge: * An interest in robotics! * Matlab/Simulink * Maple * C/C++ * Modelica/Dymola * Simpack * Pro/E * Previous experience in Multi-body simulation softwares such as SIMPACK or Modelica/Dymola is desired, but not required * Some experience with robotics is desired, but not required * Ability to learn on the goWe will determine the suitable position type (thesis, intership, or Werkstudent) based on your interests and a discussion with you.If you are interesting in working with us, or are interested just in our topics, please feel free to contact us.
