Internship in Assistive Robotics at Karlstad University, Sweden

The Physically and Cognitive Embodied Robotics and Intelligent machines
(picoROBOTA) Group at Karlstad University 
(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.kau.se_en_electrical-2Dengineering_robotics&d=CwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=uVbAA23vmB2DG5mwwy9frocqZOYZwDqCteqsJ9-gaRY&s=j9uPzB1V-vhvtRP0nd6xPyDCxd_5IOzJKnGiJ2Mui_E&e= ) in Sweden has three
open internships for a project on the development 
of a human-friendly assistive robot vehicle for supporting physically
elderly and assisting care givers for the ambient assisted living. 
For this purpose, two assistive robots vehicles currently under development
will be improved and integrated into a single platform: 
an intelligent carrying-medical tools robot vehicle and a human-friendly
assistive robot vehicle for supporting physically elderly.

The three internship positions from August to December 2016 will be focused

- One internship on “ Variable stiffness mechanism of a human-friendly
walking assist robot vehicle ”
- One internship on “3D gesture recognition of an intelligent
carrying-medical tool assistant robot “
- One internship on “ System integration of a multipurpose human-friendly
assistive robot vehicle “

Fruitful internships may lead to a PhD or Post-Doc positions with our
university partners in Japan, Italy or Poland.

Previous experience in mechanical design, robotics control and human-robot
interaction is welcome.
Candidates should have experience with 3D modeling software (e.g.
ProEngineer) as well as programming experience in C and C++.
Familiarity with control engineering, signal processing and artificial
intelligent techniques is a strong plus.

Successful applicants will be financially supported in terms of
accommodation and air flight ticket (within EU).
Karlstad University offers a basic insurance in case of emergency (during
the so-called working hours associated with work at University), 
called The Swedish State’s Group Insurance and Personal Insurance (GIF).

Selected applicants who are in the process to complete their studies during
the period of the internship may register, if fulfill the pre-requisites,
to the Project course in Electrical Engineering (ELGB40). Citizens of
countries within the EU/EEA and Switzerland will not be charged fees. 
Exchange students (from all countries) will not be charged tuition fees.

For more information, please contact Associate Professor Jorge Solis
(jorge.solis at kau.se).
