PhD student position at the Department of Automatic control at Lund University.

Project and subject description

We are now recruiting a PhD student to a project is devoted to Whole-Body Interactive Mobile Manipulation. For most mobile manipulators deployed in industrial floors and academic labs, the mobility of the platform and the manipulator are not treated in a whole-body fashion i.e., the mobile robot moves to specific positions while the manipulator is not moving and when the manipulator performs a contact or interaction task the platform remains still. The main objective of this project is to endow mobile manipulators with whole-body mobility and interaction functionalities using coordinated control of the mobile platform and the mounted robotic manipulator and address performance, reliability, and safety in dynamic environments.

The PhD student project is funded by Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP), and the student will  also be connected to WARA Robotics.
