Opportunities for Doctoral and Postdoctoral students at the Technion and
at Ariel University, Israel.

Topics:  
1. Autonomous robot navigation in dynamic urban environments, 
2. Dynamic grasping. 

Qualified Postdoc and Doctoral students are sought for projects funded by
the Israel Science Ministry and lead by Prof. Elon Rimon, Technion, and
Prof. Zvi Shiller, Ariel University.   

This project seeks to develop and experimentally validate methodologies that
will allow driverless robot vehicles to safely navigate at high speeds in
challenging urban environments, populated by static obstacles, and moving
pedestrians and vehicles.  This includes collision avoidance and motion over
cluttered urban terrain at high speeds. The research will be validated on
experimental robotic platforms and on a commercial autonomous vehicle of our
industrial partner.  Analytical tools developed to characterize the dynamic
stability 
of offroad vehicles will be used to plan trajectories for dynamic grasping.  

Applicants must have MSc or PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical
Engineering, or Computer Science  relevant to robotics.  Other requirements:
good programming skills, excellent communication and technical writing
skills.  
Prior experience in robot motion planning is a plus.  The research will be
performed either at the Technion or at Ariel University.
