The Intelligent Autonomous Systems Lab (http://ualr.edu/cxye/laboratory.htm)
of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock has multiple Ph.D. student
openings for Spring/Fall 2016. These positions will be supported by three
NIH-funded projects . The successful candidates will: (1) develop vision
based navigation methods for a robotic navigation aid and a Wearable Object
Manipulation Aid (W-ROMA) for the visually impaired; (2) develop
vision-based human motion detection and analysis methods for a quadrupedal
human-assistive robotic platform; and (3) prototype the W-ROMA (including
the electroactive polymer based micro actuator and the control circuits).
The projects will use 3D time-of-flight cameras and RGB-D cameras for
perception. The research topics include:

    - 6 DOF Simultaneous Localization of Mapping
    - Obstacle/Object Detection
    - Human Lower Limbs Detection and Motion Analysis
    - Human-Robot Interaction
    - Electroactive Polymer Actuator Design and Characterization

General guideline of admission to graduate study is referred to
http://ualr.edu/enss/. The lab currently hosts research projects funded by
the National Institutes of Health and NASA. The funded research currently
supports one postdoc and six Ph.D. students.
