[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Postdoc position at FactoLab/Institut Pascal : Multi-sensor collaborative robotic system for precision tasks in uncertain environments

Youcef Mezouar-3
*Postdoc position at FactoLab/Institut Pascal :*

*Multi-sensor collaborative robotic system for precision tasks in uncertain

Factolab is a public-private laboratory between 3 public research
laboratories at Clermont-Ferrrand (Institut Pascal, Lapsco and Limos) and
the international company Michelin. The main goal of this common laboratory
is to develop common research lines and technological solutions in the
field of the “Factory of the Future” that can be applied in use-cases
proposed by Michelin. In particular, a research and development program on
human-machine cooperation (collaborative robots and new digital
technologies) is supported. More details in: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.tyrepress.com_2&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=dky8xs4og32RUPOzNikGk2oAUIm4PhhK6DvqZLwgBRc&s=dO7LbUR1gLrJhsgFCevmKsJE9qQB-2fU72_JgUzPTuQ&e=

The proposed postdoc position will be developed in the “collaborative
robots” research branch of the Factolab program in a real application
proposed by Michelin. In this application, a special tool should be
installed at the end-effector of a robotic manipulator in order to touch a
special surface inside a small and cluttered environment. The trajectories
of the robotic system should be controlled very precisely since the
surfaces to be treated will be small and of difficult accessibility. In
fact, visual information from conventional cameras will not be enough to
perform the task and other sensors will be required (tactile, force and
sound, for example). Thereby, the research to be developed will be
based on *the
multi-modal (visual/force/tactile/sound) perception and control of a
robotic manipulator* for performing a contact task in a cluttered

*For this position  previous  experience on  computer vision is  required.

Previous experience and knowledge in one or more of the following areas will
be appreciated : robotics, control theory, sensor-based control, machine

The postdoc will work in collaboration with researchers from Institut
Pascal and with  engineers from the Michelin Ladoux research center.

Candidates should send as soon as possible their *CV** + references+
publications* in pdf format and the *emails of some references* to :
[hidden email]

The position will be covered immediately when a suitable candidate is found
and will last 2 years.
