The Robotics Research Centre in the School of Mechanical and Aerospace
Engineering at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is seeking full time
research fellow / project officer for an Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs,
i.e. quadrotor helicopter) project. This project aims at improving and
enhancing the state-of-the-art applications of UAVs in GPS-denied
unstructured and unknown environments. 

【Research Fellow】

Job description:
To improve and enhance the state-of-the-art applications of UAVs (Unmanned
Aerial Vehicles) in GPS-denied unstructured and unknown environments, and to
investigate fundamental issues for swarm and cooperative surveillance of a
UAV team, through integrating multiple sensors and utilizing on-board
resources.  Specifically, the scope of work includes but not limited to,
1) autonomous navigation of a UAV (real-time perception, data processing,
planning and control);
2) swarm of a UAV team (real-time communication, formation, etc.);
3) cooperative surveillance with UAVs, including task allocation, data 
acquisition and transmission, etc.

Requirement:
Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in
Mechatronics/Computers/Automations/ Aerodynamics, or other relevant
disciplines, with strong experience in development of UAVs, integration and
fusion of multiple sensors for flying robots and cooperation of multiple
robots. Candidates familiar with quad-rotor robotic system or embedded
system (both hardware and software) are preferable.

【Project Officer】

Job description:
To maintain and improve the existing UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) systems
in the group, and to develop necessary sensor systems for applications of
UAVs in outdoor environments.  Specifically, the scope of work includes but
not limited to,
1) manufacture, assembly and debug new UAVs, and maintain existing UAVs;
2) improvement of the architecture and the hardware and software of UAV
systems;
3) formation of a UAV team based on the Vicon system;
4) assist to develop the sensing system for outdoor applications, and to
conduct relevant experiments.

Requirement:
Candidates should hold a master/bachelor degree in
Mechatronics/Computers/Automations/ Aerodynamics, or other relevant
disciplines, with strong experience in development and maintenance of UAVs,
programming with MATLAB, good at mechatronic engineering (i.e. mechanical
design and embedded systems). Candidates familiar with quad-rotor or the
Vicon system and having hands-on experience in UAV system are preferable.
