Wissenschaftliche/r Mitarbeiter/in: Capacitive Sensor Design

Stelle frei: Ab sofort

Autonomous robots need to sense their surroundings to act safely in the human environment. Recently, we’ve made decisive steps developing a flexible and modular capacitive tactile proximity sensor (CTPS), which can be integrated into robotic hands and even used to cover a whole robot arm. So far, we’ve demonstrated the potential of these sensors for manipulation tasks and collision avoidance.

Still, to effectively use this technology in novel applications is an open research problem. Specifically, the following topics are of immediate interest for us:

• Integration of CTPS into multi-fingered robot hands
• Control of multi-fingered hands endowed with CTPS
• Recovering of large surfaces with CTPS for safe HRI
• Hardware-design and real-time control taking safety requirements into account

Our team is looking for an excellent graduate (master or diploma) of Electrical Engineering or Mechatronics. Graduates from Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering are also welcome to apply if they have the corresponding experience. For this position we expect the following profile:

• You should have experience developing analog and mixed-signal circuits. Experience using simulation tools is a plus.
• You should be proficient with PCB layout software (e.g. Altium Designer)
• You should have good knowledge of CAM/CAD software (e.g. Autodesk Inventor). Having experience with 3D-printing is a plus.
• You should be a proficient programmer, especially of micro-controllers.
