[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] PhD openings at IIT Genoa's HyQ robot project (motion control and planning) [2nd]

Claudio Semini
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
2 PhD positions at IIT in Hydraulic Robot Motion Control and Planning
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Dynamic Legged Systems Lab at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia
(IIT), an English language Institute, is seeking to appoint 2
outstanding, highly-motivated PhD students who will be involved in the
*HyQ project* that aims to develop *versatile all-terrain legged
robots*. The positions are fully funded, start in November 2018 and
typically last 3 years. For more details on the topics and submission, visit

The Hydraulic Quadruped HyQ and its successors are unique research
platforms. They are fully torque controlled hydraulic quadruped robots
equipped with inertial measurement units, laser range finders and stereo
cameras. Since 2011 HyQ has demonstrated a wide range of static and
dynamic motions such as a crawl gait, walking trot over flat, inclined
and rough terrain (indoors and outdoors), squat jumps, rearing,
balancing under disturbances and step reflexes:
