ETH Zurich: Two Open PhD Positions in Micro Flying Robots


The future Autonomous Systems Laboratory at ETH Zurich (currently at EPFL,
http://asl.epfl.ch <http://asl.epfl.ch/> ) has two open PhD position in the
field of Design, Modelling and Control of Autonomous Micro-helicopters. 

These positions are part of an EU project with the goal to development and
implementation a fully autonomous micro helicopter comparable in size and
weight to a small bird. The final system is expected to find applications in
surveillance of buildings and large indoor areas that are difficult to
access on wheels or legs.

In this context we are particularly looking for PhD students for the
following areas: Systems design and optimization, aerodynamic optimization,
dynamic modelling, non-linear control and autonomous navigation. One of the
main challenges is to deal with the very limited sensory information and
processing power.

The ideal candidates should hold a master degree in engineering, possess a
strong background in some of the fields mentioned above and present
excellent results as master student. 


Interested Candidates should send their application including curriculum
vitae and results of their master degree to: Prof. Roland Siegwart
