The research topic for the postdoc will mainly be kept within one or both of the following two main project research topics: 
 1) Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) for snake robots, with input from tactile sensors to the SLAM algorithms, i.e., tactile SLAM. 
 2) Control strategies and motion planning for snake robot environment adaptation in cluttered environments, i.e. obstacle-aided locomotion. 

The candidate will start working ca. October 2015. Application deadline: 31 July 2015.

The project constitutes a cooperation between the Norwegian research organization SINTEF and NTNU. The project is funded by the Norwegian Research Council.
