 PhD Openings in Humanoids and Human Centred Mechatronics

Humanoid & Human Centred Mechatronics Research Lab

Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT)

The Humanoids and Human Centred Mechatronics Research Laboratory (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.iit.it_lines_humanoids-2Dhuman-2Dcentered-2Dmechatronics&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=VaBvTL181CeY6mLbJDpJx9Q8C52A4mn0YAPDrKiZ038&s=sRA_HHNWt0ZzMc-bnUVgXZ0cnyE2kWdyQunQv4QLX3s&e= ) at the Department of Advanced Robotics in the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) has a number of fully funded PhD openings (starting in November 2017).  Young scientists with excellent First/Master degrees in Mechanical / Electrical engineering, computer science, or other related fields and strong competencies/interest in mechanism and robot design, and robot modelling, dynamics and robot are welcome to apply for admission.

The successful candidates will be involved in Research projects funded by the European Union including


1.  WALK-MAN(www.walk-man.eu<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.walk-2Dman.eu&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=VaBvTL181CeY6mLbJDpJx9Q8C52A4mn0YAPDrKiZ038&s=u7essTXQIom2ZdF-JuCVXUNtT8v6LYocv2xNcrZiT7k&e= >),

2.  CENTAURO(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.centauro-2Dproject.eu_&d=DwIFAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=VaBvTL181CeY6mLbJDpJx9Q8C52A4mn0YAPDrKiZ038&s=UM-ZuyTFyzPis3wL4iEjArRwU_hW3ru9bZu705PSi78&e= ),

and have the opportunity to pursue their PhD using our state of art humanoid robots (WALK-MAN, COMAN, CogIMom), quadruped platforms (CENTAURO), wearable devices (HAND & LEG EXOSKELETONS), and a number of robotics systems powered by novel actuation principles.
For the PhD call of this year, the following themes are available:


LEGGED LOCOMOTION-CONTROL

Locomotion Control of a Mobile Manipulation platform with Hybrid leg and wheel functionality

Whole-body Control of Hybrid Humanoid-Quadruped Robotic Platform

Whole-body Sensor Fusion and Motion Adaptation of a Legged Manipulation Robot

Robust Locomotion of Humanoids in an Unstructured Environment Under External Forces

Dexterous Humanoid Walking on Restricted and Unstable Footholds



ROBOTIC ACTUATION

New Efficient actuation systems based on the blending of Forced and Natural dynamics

Design principles and control of high performance robotic actuation systems

Design and Control of Novel Lightweight Robotic Joint-Link Modules with distributed variable stiffness



WEARABLE ROBOTICS & TELEOPERATION

Development of Under-actuated upper limp wearable systems for Teleoperation and rehabilitation

Human Robot Collaborative Control of a Mobile Manipulation platform with

Hybrid leg and wheel functionality

Development of EXO-Muscles: Wearable Add-On Elastic power force augmentation Units



MULTIMODAL PERCEPTION

3D Perception for Rough terrain locomotion and Free-form object manipulation

Cutaneous and Kinesthetic sensing for robotic arms, dextrous hands and feet
