[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] Research Associate or PhD Assistant (f/m) for Autonomous High-precision Mobile Robot Development
PhD Position (f/m) for developing an autonomous high-precision mobile robot
Our working group 'Large Volume Metrology' of the Geodetic Institute (GIK) is part of KIT (9200 employees and 26000 students). Together with international industrial partners, we are developing an autonomous mobile robot for high-accuracy tasks. In the first step, this robot shall determine the flatness of large areas (as production halls) with sub-mm-accuracy. In the second step, the robot shall mark specific positions (e.g. boreholes) with 2D-sub-mm-accuracy. We seek a person for the general implementation of the concept, possibly modified by his/her own ideas. Further development and integration of innovative control algorithms und/or sensor fusion is highly appreciated.
Your PhD research will be supported extensively: You will work in strong cooperation with relevant research labs, e.g. Intelligent Process Control and Robotics (IPR/IAR) at KIT. The PhD research will be supervised by designated researchers of relevant institutes. You will benefit from a variety of qualification programs of KIT as well as from attending conferences and working with high-precision equipment.
