[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] PhD openings at IIT in HyQ robot project (motion control and planning)

Claudio Semini
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
2 open 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 2017 and
typically last 3 years. For more details on the topics and submission, visit

The Hydraulic Quadrupeds HyQ and HyQ2Max are unique research platforms.
Both 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:
