Fully funded PhD position at Aarhus University
Title: Advanced and reliable autonomy in aerial robotics for high speed
trajectory tracking using deep neural networks

Research area and project description:
Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship position within
the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University, Denmark starting in Fall
2019. At Aarhus University, you will have thrilling opportunity to apply the
latest machine learning/artificial intelligence technologies to solve
real-world problems, such as high speed, agile manoeuvres for drones.

We are looking for qualified, talented, and enthusiastic PhD students who
wish to investigate the embedded guidance, control and navigation problem of
unmanned aerial systems using artificial intelligence/machine learning
methods. Our aim is to leverage the current state-of-the-art autonomy level
towards smarter robots, which will learn and interact with their
environment, collaborate with people and other robots, plan their future
actions, and execute the given task accurately.

What you stand to gain: a fully funded PhD position for 3 years (starting
Fall 2019) at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University; a fun
environment to drive your passion for robotics.

The research will be carried out under the supervision of Associate
Professor Erdal Kayacan (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.erdal.info&d=DwICAg&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=ZfDBlGDIbei49bxzkRoCkvmNDrsukj3uJasSVv7VaMc&s=I7OdiKWZfb4vK8_p2hdIj_anQqe-AJjvPx1NLG-Dml8&e=).
