(force, vision) and/or model based (predictive) control methods.
developed by the team are validated and implemented in robotic
accurate medical applications.
The candidate will work in the framework of the FP7 IP ARAKNES 4-year
(2008-2012) financially supported by the European Commission. The
objective of the
project is to provide an innovative robotics platform for assisting
single-port surgery. The project activities involve collaborations
european research institutes such as SSS'A (Italy - Paolo Dario -
(Switzerland), Imperial College London (UK), etc.
The successful candidate will be responsible for designing,
implementing, testing and
benchmarking teleoperation control routines for tethered and wireless
systems in the medical field.
The candidates are expected to have experience in one or more of the
areas: control theory, robotics, haptics, teleoperation. The
candidates are also
expected to have good programming skills in C/C++.
Selection of potential candidates will begin immediately.
