A PhD position is now available at University of Grenoble Alpes (France)
in "Cobotic in industrial environment for agile de- and re-
manufacturing". The candidate will be involved in the Circular project*.
The PhD Thesis will focus on safety of the operators when they cooperate
with industrial robots in a common workspace. It will explore the
different aspects related to safety of the operators and cooperation
with industrial robots: (i) regarding 3D perception to monitor the
common workspace and (ii) regarding control, the industrial robot must
be able to integrate constraints provided by the perception and adapt
its behavior to these constraints. Finally, perception and control will
be integrated on a demonstrator to show that the combination of these
two streams of research will allow to provide the necessary level of
safe workspace sharing required for de- and re- manufacturing.
The position is open to candidates with Master in artificial
intelligence (machine learning/probabilistic models/algorithms),
robotics, perception and control. English is required and French is a
plus. ROS knowledge is a plus.
The open position is a 3 years Phd fellowship with competitive salary.
The CIRCULAR project aims at developing reliable circular industrial
systems able to transform post-used products into new added-value products.
Industrial systems will have to face the main Industry of the Future
challenges: resource scarcity, energy efficiency, customization
expectations, job quality required by the fourth industrial revolution,
etc. This project will show that agile circular industrial systems will
give companies the ability to satisfy those requirements while proposing
new high-added-value products while minimizing the use of material and
energy resources. We want to move towards a circular economic
“take-make-consume-reuse” model instead of a classical linear
“take-make-consume-dispose” model. The main scientific obstacles are
production systems agility, human/ machine collaboration, implementation
of the numerical solutions and design and implementation of the new
In this framework, the project consortium has the strong ambition to
develop a sustainable multidisciplinary research and industrial network
to address the circular industrial system issues at local, national and
international levels. The objective is to launch several ambitious
projects with the main renowned international universities in the field
and the relevant industrial networks.
