Working at MIT offers opportunities, an environment, a culture – and benefits – that just aren't found together anywhere else. If you're curious, motivated, want to be part of a unique community, and help shape the future – then take a look at this opportunity.
ROBOTICS RESEARCH SPECIALIST, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL)-Interactive Robotics Group, to help implement software and infrastructure for a next-generation dexterous explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) robot. The objective of this project is to advance state-of-the-art in robotic explosive ordnance disposal by developing capabilities for locating, following, and manipulating cables with field deployable mobile manipulation robots that support human-in-the-loop missions. Foundational to this objective is the conscientious use of multimodal robot sensing, modeling, planning, machine learning, and robot controllers to reduce the cognitive burden on the remote human operator of EOD robots. Will be responsible for working with researchers to develop and deploy applications to remotely direct and control the dexterous mobile robot in performing EOD tasks, assisting in development and maintenance of a core sensing and control system for a robotic mobile manipulation platform, developing infrastructure to maintain and expand on-board sensing capabilities, and designing interfaces for robot debugging and control tools.
This is a one-year appointment with possibility of extension based upon continued funding.
