Full-time (part-time possible)
At the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics of the DLR, namely within the Adaptive Biointerfaces Group (http://www.dlr.de/rm/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-3793), our research topics include the detection of human motion intention from diverse biosignals from the muscles, such as: electromyography, force myography, tactile myography.
In the framework of rehabilitation and pain therapy (http://www.dlr.de/rm/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-3817/6237_read-9003), we aim to detect this intent from a trans-radial amputee, that is, we want to reconstruct the intended configuration of the missing hand and wrist, and we have information of the stump only at our disposal. By blending these advanced sensors, material science, machine learning and a fully integrated training process, we want to give them back a maximum of functionality, i.e. a maximum number of DOFs with proportional force control as well as precision: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6uI5FLB9Q4 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6uI5FLB9Q4).
Our setup already includes the machine learning and sensor drivers, your task will be to test different sensors (pressure based), imagine a way to integrate them in a bracelet in order to get the best signal possible and to optimize their processing, eventually mixing them to get better results.
Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development.
Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives.
Our human resources policy puts great value on a healthy work-life balance as well as equal opportunities for men and women.
Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
