Job title: PostDoc position on Social robots for domestic taks assistance

Dept. of Computer Engineering and Maths
School of Engineering
Universitat Rovira i Virgili
Av. Paisos Catalans, 26
E-43007 Tarragona, Spain


Job Overview:

Assistive personal robots will become more useful in our lives by interacting with and assisting human beings in tasks of everyday life, such as housekeeping and butler services. Although many commercial products for home care assistance have been launched, their abilities are very limited due to being fully targeted at one specific task. Thus, research on multitask robots has recently seen much progress. These robots operating in domestic environments (e.g., home settings) should be able, for example, to pick up and safely transport objects from one place to another, to draw, or care. To achieve such tasks, the robot needs to be able to identify and to recognise, as well as to grasp and manipulate different types of objects, in addition to cope with many challenges.
