[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] EE Engineer for Legged Robot Project at IIT, Italy

Claudio Semini
Electronics Engineer for Legged Robot Project at IIT, Genova

The Advanced Robotics Department (ADVR) and the Dynamic Legged Systems
(DLS) Research Lines at IIT, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, an
English-language research Institute, are seeking a highly motivated,
full-time engineer with key development roles in the areas of
electronics and embedded systems.

*The selected candidate will join a motivated, inter-disciplinary group
of researchers and engineers, and has the opportunity to pursue research
and development within the project of a tele-operated quadruped vehicle
with manipulator in collaboration with INAIL (Italy’s National Institute
for Insurance against Workplace Injuries). *
*Info about the quadruped robot: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__dls.iit.it_robots-2A&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=IPKIgrPJ7CIQEP5JsChHBADhc2CxjrH8orelI5XOILw&s=i4gXICKMuklP5wxvP42fFBENgVqAG4Yx6MrDA2W9VQc&e=

The project will develop a novel, collaborative, master-slave
teleoperation hardware and software system targeting operation in
hazard-prone industries, with the aim of reducing risks to workers’
health and safety. It will utilize, develop, and integrate advanced
technologies in tele-locomotion, tele-manipulation, and human-machine
interaction. The project will be developed within an inter-disciplinary
group in close collaboration with end-users. The objectives of the
project are: (1) integration of a new hydraulic quadruped field robot;
(2) development of a novel dexterous robotic manipulator arm for object
grasping and manipulation; (3) development of a high performance 6-DOF
force feedback master and integration of a hand exoskeleton for
dexterous haptic tele-manipulation; and (4) development of novel user
interaction interfaces for intuitive teleoperation using augmented and
virtual reality systems.

Further details about the position and the application procedure can be
found at the below link. The application deadline is June 20th, 2018.


Best regards,
Claudio Semini
