PhD Scholarship in Aerial Manipulation at Technical University of Denmark

International students are invited for a PhD scholarship in acoustics at Technical University of Denmark. Applications are invited up to July 26, 2019.

The Automation and Control Group at the Department of Electrical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark invites applicants for a3-years PhD position in the area of Aerial Manipulation.

The goal of this PhD project is to design, control and test novel aerial manipulation technologies for inspection in the maritime industry. The project will require gathering end user requirements, design lightweight manipulators and end-effectors for tool manipulation with a drone, develop control strategies for robust aerial interaction, test and validate the developed technologies in real-life application.

The selected candidate will have the opportunity to work closely with major players in the Danish maritime industry in the field of aerial inspection and will be part of a vibrant team with strong academic competences at DTU, where the position will be based. Cooperation with the other members of the project team and equal contribution to common building blocks of the developed system is foreseen.Associate Professor Matteo Fumagalli will supervise the selected candidate.

(AUT) at the Department of Electrical Engineeringperforms research in the technical sciences related to automation. AUT is among the world leaders in fundamental and applied research in condition monitoring and fault-tolerant control. Model-, signal- and knowledge-based methods for diagnosis and prognosis have been proposed and developed for a wide array of applications with a clear industrial impact. The group performs cutting-edge research in the area of reconfigurable modular robotics, where modularity is pursued as a mean to enhance robustness and performance through reconfiguration of the internal and external system architecture. AUT also holds strong expertise in mechatronic design, perception for mobile autonomous robots through integration of smart sensor technologies, probabilistic methods and learning techniques. The available expertise in those areas is also outsourced for public and private consultancy. The selected candidate will be responsible of the mechatronic design of aerial manipulation systems for inspection by contact within the maritime industry. Contribution is expected: Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their master’s degree but cannot begin before having received it.

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender, disability, race, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.
