GE's Global Research Robotics Group at Niskayuna, NY is looking for highly motivated interns with a proven ability to solve robotics problems for real-world, industrial environments. The ideal candidate possesses a broad experience in working with small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS). You will be joining a cross-disciplinary team of vision, controls, analytics, and mechatronics engineers working together to solve difficult industrial research problems. You'll apply your theoretical knowledge to real-life technical problems, and develop your skills in a cutting edge global environment.

Potential Focus Areas:

1.       State-of-the-art robot mapping and localization (SLAM) algorithms for sUAS in industrial environments.

2.       Real-time obstacle avoidance and flight planning algorithms for industrial environments.

3.       Shared autonomy between operator and sUAS.

4.       Intuitive interfaces for remote control of robots.

1.       Must be a graduate or PhD student enrolled in an accredited college or university.

2.       Must have established strong academic performance with research orientation (3.4/4.0 cumulative GPA or better) at the graduate level.

3.       Experience in C/C++, ROS, OpenCV in a continuous integration and unit testing environment.

4.       Legal authorization to work in the U.S. is required.

Desired Characteristics

1.       Ability to work independently as well as within a team environment.

2.       Excellent communication skills.

3.       Research experience in 3D vision, SLAM, machine learning, deep learning, path planning, and controls.

4.       Prior publications in reputed conferences/journals are a plus.
Please mail your applications with the completed CV, a cover letter describing research interests, and dates of availability to Shiraj Sen (shiraj.sen at ge.com<mailto:shiraj.sen at ge.com>) and/or Mauricio Castillo-Effen (castillo at ge.com<mailto:castillo at ge.com>).
