PhD position in mapping and semantic understanding
(Christopher Mei and Simon Lacroix)

This project aims to create a common framework for the task of mapping
(simultaneous localisation and mapping) and place/object recognition.
This research work will encompass to various degrees, sensor fusion
(vision and/or laser), estimation theory and machine learning
(graph-based reasoning).

- Masters degree in EE/CS or applied mathematics
- Experience in robotics, computer vision, or machine learning
- Good programming skills in MATLAB/C/C++
- A strong mathematical background is desirable

Located in the University town of Toulouse, in the south-west of
France, the RIS group belongs to the CNRS-LAAS (Laboratory for the
analysis and architecture of systems) laboratory, a 640 man strong
research centre with about 90 people working in robotics. It benefits
from strong connections to the adjoining universities and the space
and aeronautics industry.
