The Robot Vision Group at Imperial College London's Department of 
Computing is collaborating with a major UK manufacturer to advance the 
vision capabilities of consumer mobile robots.

A PhD studentship (possibly two) is available with the aim to 
investigate how cameras could provide a robot with the 3D perception 
needed to move reliably through a space and obtain a detailed 
understanding of the scene around it. This work will build on and 
interact with recent promising research on real-time 3D SLAM and 
reconstruction, as well as taking account of real-world constraints on 
processing, cameras and robot mechanisms.

The student, located at Imperial College and supervised by Dr. Andrew 
Davison, will also work closely with researchers at the company who are 
developing real-world consumer robotics solutions and looking to the 
future in this exciting new area.

The studentship is open to candidates of EU nationality, and provides 
fees and a full bursary to support living expenses for three years. 
Candidates should have excellent degree qualifications in a closely 
related topic, and a demonstrable strong interest in robotics and 
computer vision. To apply, please send:

- a full CV, including the names and contact details of two referees;
- and a covering letter explaining your interest in the position

by email to Dr. Andrew Davison, Department of Computing, Imperial 
College London at ajd at doc.ic.ac.uk

Any enquiries can be directed to the same address.

Closing date 20th March 2012. For the right candidate the studentship 
will be available to start immediately.
