Motion planning of unmanned aerial vehicles with visual-aided simultaneous
localization and mapping (V-SLAM): This project aims to realize motion
planning of unmanned aerial vehicles in priori unknown environments by
vision-based sensing. In this project, V-SLAM algorithms will be developed,
and tested during fast flights with a multi-rotor equipped with a camera,
lidar, and inertial sensors. V-SLAM will provide an instantaneous local map
of surroundings in which local motion planning of multi-rotor will be
conducted.
[Requirements]
-	M.S. in Robotics or closely related areas
-	Background in computer vision, simultaneous localization and mapping
-	Background in Python, C/C++ programming
-	Excellent English skills (writing and speaking)
[Additional Desired Features]
-	Background in ROS-Gazebo
-	Experience with real world robots, sensors
-	Basic knowledge/experience in motion planning research
-	Basic knowledge/experience in unmanned aerial vehicle research 
-	Publication in relevant conferences (e.g., ICRA, IROS, RSS, CVPR) or
journals (e.g., IJRR, TRO, AR)
-	Available for overseas travel for collaboration
[Offer]
-	1-year contract (with a possible extension) with a competitive salary
-	Research opportunity in one of the world’s leading technical universities
(#4 in Engineering and Technology, QS World University Rankings 2018)
-	Exciting research environment in Flight Mechanics and Control Lab – NTU
-	Possibility to visit collaborators in Aarhus University, Denmark and UNR,
USA
[How To Apply]
Application should consist of:
-	CV with a full publication list
-	Contact details of three referees 

These documents should be compiled as a single pdf file, named as
"<Name>_<Surname>.pdf", and should be sent to
