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