Workplace : TOULOUSE
Date of publication : Thursday, January 10, 2019
Type of Contract : FTC Scientist
Contract Period : 18 months
Expected date of employment : 1 March 2019
Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : Between 2530 et 2920 € gross per month, according to the candidate experience
Desired level of education : Higher than 5-year university degree
Experience required : 1 to 4 years


The job will consist in designing and implementing of real-time robotic cooperative manipulation control algorithms. Such algorithms must ensure safety and accuracy of execution, despite the uncertainties on the dynamic models of the robots and the environment.
The candidate will have a prominent role in the PRO-ACT project, in particular in the interaction with the partners, the preparation of deliverables, etc.


- Design of coordinated control algorithms for two robots equipped with manipulator arms transporting large objects
- Implementation of these algorithms
- Integration of these algorithms within a simulation platform
- Integration of these algorithms within other software developed by the other project partners
- Active participation in the project: interactions with partners, technical meetings, writing deliverables, project reviews


- Knowledge of robotic manipulators
- Good knowledge of C/C ++ and Matlab programming
- Familiarity with tools such as ROS
- Excellent level of written and spoken English
- Proven expertise in developing major projects under Linux (git, cmake,...)
- Expertise in dynamic modelling and motion control of manipulators
- Expertise in force control and robotic state estimation

Work Context

The Robotics and Interactions (RIS) team of LAAS-CNRS (Toulouse, France) is developing novel control and planning methods for enabling planetary assembly and construction tasks with multiple cooperative mobile robots. The team is among the pioneers in this area, and has a consolidated experience in the framework of national and European projects. The two positions proposed here are in the context of the H2020 PRO-ACT project, whose goal is to use mobile robotic platforms to build a precursor lunar base for future human settlement. The primary objective of PRO-ACT is to implement and demonstrate multi-robot object manipulation capabilities, in the context of a lunar base construction scenario.
