1 PhD position at IIT in Computer Vision for Legged Robots
--------------------------------------------------------------

The Dynamic Legged Systems Lab at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia 
(IIT), an English language Institute, is seeking to appoint 1 
outstanding, highly-motivated PhD student who will be involved in the 
*HyQ project* that aims to develop *versatile all-terrain legged 
robots*. The position is fully funded, in collaboration with Politecnico 
di Torino, starts in May 2019 and typically lasts 3 years. For more

The Hydraulic Quadruped HyQ and its successors are unique research 
platforms. They are fully torque controlled hydraulic quadruped robots 
equipped with inertial measurement units, laser range finders and stereo 
cameras. Since 2011 HyQ has demonstrated a wide range of static and 
dynamic motions such as a crawl gait, walking trot over flat, inclined 
and rough terrain (indoors and outdoors), squat jumps, rearing, 
balancing under disturbances and step reflexes:
