Applications are invited for a Research Assistant in Robotics to join the UCL Aspire Create team for 6 months (full-time / part-time / job-share), on the CROWDBOT project. CROWDBOT (aka “Safe Robot Navigation in Dense Crowds”) is a EUR 4M Horizon 2020 consortium of 5 universities and 2 industrial partners: INRIA, France (co-ordinator); EPFL, Switzerland; ETHZ, Switzerland; RWTH, Germany; UCL, UK; SBR Europe, France; and LOC GmbH, Germany. CROWDBOT brings together world-leading robotics experts to develop the next-generation of robots capable of navigating crowded environments. UCL is leading a core workpackage on the co-design and evaluation of the CROWDBOT system, as well as developing one of the demonstrators: a crowd-aware smart wheelchair.  

The Aspire Centre for Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__ucl.ac.uk_aspire-2Dcreate&d=DwIF-g&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=17-uhaWbj5LN19MnS_9LKdATOoPAkwlQ5wo0mPb40zA&s=puIhkP31OgzUF1UvDcEcx5jotfrhmuiykRqWalXpnVY&e=) is physically located on the UCL Stanmore campus and is integrated into both the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and the Aspire Charity, which gives us unprecedented access to clinicians, patients and assistive technology providers. The postholder will be working as part of a team to develop our smart wheelchair platform. You will primarily be making mechatronic modifications to a commercially available wheelchair, instrumenting it with a suite of sensors and working on the power and data distribution systems. You will be responsible for the low-level testing and documentation of these modifications, which will be used by the rest of the team.
