[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] UNR REU Site on Collaborative Human-Robot Interaction

David Feil-Seifer
The Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of
Nevada, Reno is offering a NSF-supported 10-week research experience
for undergraduates in Collaborative HRI. The site will develop new
autonomous robot capabilities and supporting network and data science
technology to address real-world challenges of operating autonomous
systems in hospital, clinic, home, and infrastructure environments.

* Autonomous Underground Robotic Inspection
* Empirical Study of Socially-Appropriate Interaction
* Language-Based Human-Robot Collaboration
* Path Planning Development for Dirt Cleaning Robots
* Development of HRI Simulator for Multi-Objective Optimization
* Network management of heterogeneous  robotics devices in a wireless
* Data Collection and Analysis Tools For Natural Human-Human Interaction

In addition to participating in a hands-on orientation week, students
will also participate in workshops on how to write an application for
graduate school and how to write an application for a National Science
Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship (GRF). Students will
participate in a research project, prepare a written report on their
project, and present to the University's undergraduate research

Award Information:
* $5,000 stipend for 10 weeks
* On-campus housing provided
* Food allowance
* Round-trip travel expenses up to $800

Total: approximately $8,000
