ABB Corporate Research, Sweden is seeking a highly motivated, talented,
driven R&D scientist with a deep background in robot vision and perception,
and with ability to drive and deploy ideas for ABBs future robots. You will
be part of the Mechanical Systems & Mechatronics Group at ABB Corporate
Research in Västerås. In our role as a Corporate Research unit we ensure
ABB’s technology competitiveness now and in future. In the Mechanical
Systems & Mechatronics Group we are currently 19 researchers focusing on
robotics and rotating machinery. Our specific expertise lies in the area of
industrial robotics, machine design, machine elements, dynamics, and sensors
& electronics.

The spatial and functional separation between humans and robots in
production is in the process of being replaced by collaborative work in
human-robot mixed environments. Thus, a central topic for our team is
collaborative robotics, with one of our results being the creation and
development of the YuMi robot concept. As a part of our team, it is your
task to shape a vision for tomorrow’s ultra-flexible industrial robotic
systems with emphasis on ease-of-use and robustness in applications based on
vision and other sensors, on exploiting machine learning in the context of
robotics, and on effective human-machine interaction. We have various
ongoing EU projects where you will have great opportunities to collaborate
with leading national and international universities and research institutes
on collaborative robotics problems, as well as managing potential
exploitation of results.

You have a PhD in robotics, machine vision, machine/robot learning or a
related area with a strong interest in robotics and automation. Previous
experience in applying machine vision or machine learning in robotics or in
robot application research, such as deploying object recognition or pose
estimation algorithms onto real world systems, is a strong merit.
Familiarity with computer vision, perception and related libraries such as
PCL or OpenCV is an advantage. You enjoy driving specific activities to
successful conclusion while following a visionary continuity in your work.
To succeed in this position, you should be capable of working both
independently and in a team, while establishing collaborations both within
ABB and externally with leading research organizations and universities. You
will be working in an international environment. It is therefore required
that you have good spoken and written command of the English language.
