I have an opening for a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department
of Mechanical Engineering, National University of Singapore, beginning
around Aug/Sept 06, in the area of humanoid robotics (simulation). A
minimum commitment of one year is required.
The work is part of a new humanoid project in Singapore aiming to create
a life-size humanoid robot with multiple capabilities. The aims of this
work are 1) to develop a virtual humanoid robot in a simulation
environment. This environment will enable human operator to validate
kinematics-based motion-planning algorithms and dynamics-based
behavior-control algorithms; and 2) to develop complex behaviors'
algorithms for the simulated humanoid robot, like walking on rough
terrains, running, manipulating, etc.
The successful applicant will become a member of a multidisciplinary
team. He will work closely with a few PhD students to achieve the aims
of the project. He should have good knowledge in programming skill
(e.g. C, C++, Java, etc) especially in the realistic simulation of
humanoid robot's behaviors. Some background knowledge in virtual
reality will be a plus. He will be involved in the sourcing of a
commercial multibody dynamics simulation software package. He will then
be involved in the development of user-friendly GUI for the simulation,
and the creation of a realistic simulation model for the new humanoid
robot. The simulation environment will eventually need to be interfaced
with the actual humanoid robot and with a tele-operation system. He
will also develop the algorithms for the complex behaviors of the robot
using the simulation environment.
Please contact me (chewcm at alum.mit.edu <mailto:chewcm at alum.mit.edu> ) if
someone you know wishes to be considered for this position.
