R&D jobs and PhD posts at the University of Bristol

 

We have a number of positions open on the upcoming EU H2020 project MULTIDRONE where we will develop drone technology for the film industry, especially dynamic, outdoor, sports-like events. 

Partners: The University of Bristol is the project prime contractor. MULTIDRONE involves 9 partners that include 3 leading broadcasters: DEUTSCHE WELLE (DE), RAI (IT), BBC (UK) and many other Research and Commercial partners: THALES (FR), AUTH (GR), UNIV SEVILLA (ES), ALERION (FR), IST-ID (PT). 

Vision: MULTIDRONE aims to develop an innovative, intelligent, multi-drone platform for media production to cover outdoor events, which are typically held over wide areas (at stadium/city level). The 4-10 drone team, to be managed by the production director and crew, will have: a) increased decisional autonomy, by minimizing production crew load and interventions and b) improved robustness, security and safety mechanisms (e.g., embedded flight regulation compliance, enhanced crowd avoidance, autonomous emergency landing, communications security), enabling it to carry out its mission even against adverse conditions or crew inaction and to handle emergencies.

Challenges: Robotic vision/active perception, visual mapping (spatial and semantic), cinematically-interesting awareness, visual object detection/tracking, visual information analysis, systems integration, drone systems and safety, human in the loop and related.

5 current jobs at the University of Bristol:


1) Research Associate/Senior Research Associate on multiple drone computer vision (active perception) for audiovisual shooting.
