PhD title: Cobotic in industrial environment for agile de- and re- 

Subject description
A PhD position is now available at University of Grenoble Alpes (France) 
in "Cobotic in industrial environment for agile de- and re- 
manufacturing". The candidate will be involved in the Circular project*. 
The PhD Thesis will focus on safety of the operators when they cooperate 
with industrial robots in a common workspace. It will explore the 
different aspects related to safety of the operators and cooperation 
with industrial robots: (i) regarding 3D perception to monitor the 
common workspace and (ii) regarding control, the industrial robot must 
be able to integrate constraints provided by the perception and adapt 
its behavior to these constraints. Finally, perception and control will 
be integrated on a demonstrator to show that the combination of these 
two streams of research will allow to provide the necessary level of 
safe workspace sharing required for de- and re- manufacturing.

More information are available at: 

The position is open to candidates with Master in artificial 
intelligence (machine learning/probabilistic models/algorithms), 
robotics, perception and control. English is required and French is a 
plus. ROS knowledge is a plus.

The open position is a 3 years Phd fellowship with competitive salary.

Expected starting date: October 1^st 2018

Deadline of applications: July 31^st , 2018.

The CIRCULAR project is a 3.5 years Cross Disciplinary Project 
(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__circular.univ-2Dgrenoble-2Dalpes.fr_&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=dWa6jE9LKTAKDbOFieUYF-E7iZaDbmyocFyVwVMlBfk&s=53JFHgTOiZ7nX8smxLK9kE7IYlR59nR4KWdPs_jqeg4&e=), funded by IDEX Grenoble 
(https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.communaute-2Duniv-2Dgrenoble-2Dalpes.fr_en_&d=DwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=dWa6jE9LKTAKDbOFieUYF-E7iZaDbmyocFyVwVMlBfk&s=e__vaU3crkWeAN-3VNEAzPJD0My-BbQ7M1RdPqYGHb8&e=) for an amount of 
1.45 Million Euros.

The CIRCULAR project aims at developing reliable circular industrial 
systems able to transform post-used products into new added-value products.

Industrial systems will have to face the main Industry of the Future 
challenges: resource scarcity, energy efficiency, customization 
expectations, job quality required by the fourth industrial revolution, 
etc. This project will show that agile circular industrial systems will 
give companies the ability to satisfy those requirements while proposing 
new high-added-value products while minimizing the use of material and 
energy resources. We want to move towards a circular economic 
“take-make-consume-reuse” model instead of a classical linear 
“take-make-consume-dispose” model. The main scientific obstacles are 
production systems agility, human/ machine collaboration, implementation 
of the numerical solutions and design and implementation of the new 
necessary organizations.

In this framework, the project consortium has the strong ambition to 
develop a sustainable multidisciplinary research and industrial network 
to address the circular industrial system issues at local, national and 
international levels. The objective is to launch several ambitious 
projects with the main renowned international universities in the field 
and the relevant industrial networks.
