Opening of a PhD or Postdoc Position on Modelling Rigid and Deformable Objects for Robotic Manipulation
4 Janvier 2023
Catégorie : Post-doctorant
In this research project, we aim to develop computer vision models and simulation tools for deep understanding of the scene, and cover objectives:
- Rigid object detection, segmentation and tracking for grasp location predictions
- Deformable object modeling for robot grasping and manipulation
Despite uncountable number of potential applications enabled by such a robotic manipulation system, we will focus our attention on three use cases that we have been implementing through 4 research projects, namely 1) bin-picking widely required in logistics and industrial assembly line, 2) waste sorting for better waste recycling and environment protection, and 3) assistance systems for “stick-to-bed” patients or elders with limited physical ability in their daily life object manipulation tasks, e.g., fetching a bottle of water and pouring it into a glass. They are closely related to three ongoing research projects within the group, namely the 3-year LEARN-REAL project, the PSPC FAIR WASTES project and the CHIRON project.
