WASP-funded PhD student position at the Department of Automatic Control at Lund University.

Project and subject description

We are hiring a doctoral student within a project on Robotic Manipulation with Extrinsic Dexterity. This PhD project is dedicated to enhancing autonomous robots’ ability to interact with their environment and manipulate objects, despite the limited dexterity of their grippers, through refined hand-arm coordination and external contacts (extrinsic dexterity). It focuses on developing adaptive robot motion/force control strategies for object manipulation in case of frictional contacts, capable of learning from and adjusting to environmental uncertainties, utilizing nonlinear control and machine learning techniques.
