RM's SmartHand
is capable of an unprecedented range of skills including bin picking and
assembly of parts as small as an M3 screw and as large as a toner
cartridge. Working closely with robotics researchers at the University of
Colorado, RM Inc. wishes to advance knowledge in robotics by creating world
class products, open source software, educational materials, and performing
cutting edge research at the intersection of computer vision, tactile
sensing, and discrete planning. Specific topics we are currently exploring
are the duality between vision and touch, planning assembly sequences, and
abstracting machine learning and optimization into easy-to-use user
interfaces. We are also interested in semantic scene understanding as well
as programming and reporting on robot actions using natural language.

This position requires application via the I-PERF program and the candidate
will be a contractor for ASEE. Please feel free to contact
nikolaus at roboticmaterials.com for questions and determine a possible match
prior to application.
