[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Human-in-the-loop Controls Engineer - Exoskeletons, Dephy, Maynard MA
Dephy is looking for candidates who were born to be engineers: those who
have the urge to understand how things work, those who get excited when
there is no known solution to the problem at hand. We are curious, creative
and passionate engineers searching for team members to help us tackle
problems at the forefront of wearable robotics. Come help us transition
mobility exoskeletons from labs and treadmills to the real world: cities,
trails and mountains.
As a Controls Engineer you will have two easy tasks: predict when the
user's foot will next touch the ground and determine how much assistive
torque should be applied. There are a few constraints: it has to be done
real-time on a small microcontroller, the inputs are noisy, the sensors are
imperfect, the terrain, gait and/or gait speed might be changing, the user
adapts to your previous actions, and a machine learning algorithm with a 1%
false positive rate will result in the user tripping every 100m.
