We aim to gather the smartest robot enthusiasts to build a fully autonomous
robot that can see and operate in the human environment, bring a true
robotic future to life.

For this position, we are looking for a talented algorithm developer.

*Job Description*

Develop algorithms for the robot arm, robot hand and mobile robot
applications in logistic settings, and maintain the implementation of these
The algorithms involved include but not limited to motion planning,
collision checking, collision avoidance, world representation, mapping,
localization, navigation, grasp planning, trajectory optimization, 3D bin
packing, etc. Most of these algorithms are abstract and do not rely on
domain knowledge of robotics.
Part of the work is to develop and maintain existing open-source libraries,
for example, FCL (Flexible Collision Library).

*Position Requirement*
