[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Manipulation Engineer on robot arm motion planning. Dorabot Inc. (Shenzhen, China)

Vivian Xie
We aim to gather the smartest robot enthusiasts to build a fully autonomous
robot that can see and operate in a human environment, bring a true
robotic future
to life.

Mobile manipulators require complex 3D environment models and advanced
motion control to safely navigate in simple dynamic environments. In order
to allow true full automation in environments designed for human, we are
developing a new motion planner that allows complex mobile manipulators to
avoid all static, dynamic and unknown obstacles and generate collision-free
trajectories even while moving. In addition, the planner needs to obey all
task-specific constraints in terms of accuracy, visibility, restricted
end-effector orientations and kinematic singularities. We will take dynamic
optimization into consideration at the very beginning, in order to generate
time-optimized arm motion with this planner.

We are looking for a talented engineer/researcher with extensive hands-on
experience with robots. You'll be responsible for the development and
refinement of manipulation capabilities on our autonomous mobile
manipulator, including the motion planner stated above. You will be part of
the core R&D team within Dorabot, work closed with vision and application
engineers, focus on challenging scenarios such as random bin-picking,
object placing, tool manipulating, all in spaces full of various obstacles.
We work in a fast-paced, agile environment, where we constantly
collaborate, brainstorm & peer review ideas, and test proposed solutions.
We encourage continual learning within the team.
