Event-Driven Perception for Robotics Research Line at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (www.edpr.iit.it<http://www.edpr.iit.it/>) is opening a Post doc position in Efficient perception for safety and ergonomics for human-robot interaction in manufacturing workspaces.
The position is focusing on neuromorphic sensing of human presence and human movement with the goal of improving safety and ergonomics for human-robot interaction in manufacturing workspaces.
The research activities will be carried out under the supervision of Dr. Chiara Bartolozzi and Dr. Arren Glover. The selected candidate will work with a multidisciplinary consortium of participant to the awarded project APRIL (H2020 DT-FOF-12, n. G.A. 870142). APRIL project aims at implementing and deploying market oriented, low cost and multipurpose robots that support semiautomatic tasks in manufacturing production lines and handle flexible or deformable materials in industries of any size or domain. The candidate will work with different robotic platforms for human-robot interaction in manufacturing context selected together with the consortium and with different sensorial setups specifically designed to assess the gaze pattern, reaction time, working movements, fatigue level in workers. Specifically, the candidate will work on the decoding of human movement and intention to improve safety and interaction between robots and operators, using event-driven vision sensing, to exploit efficiency, low latency and high temporal resolution. Event-driven vision will be used to extract relevant characteristics of velocity, and acceleration in 3D to infer action features (e.g. trajectory prediction, time-of-arrival) and psychophysics state of the operator (e.g.: vitality and fatigue). Such kinematic and psychophysics parameters will be used to estimate in real-time the intention and goal of the action.
Salary and benefits are competitive for international standards.
