The job will consist in designing and implementing sampling-based motion planning algorithms for coordinated multi-arm manipulation (closed kinematic chains). The considered tasks are the transport and manipulation of objects in a cluttered environment.
The candidate will have a prominent role in the PRO-ACT H2020 project, in particular in the interaction with the partners, the preparation of deliverables, etc.


- Conception and design of coordinated sampling-based motion planning algorithms for coordinated multi-arm manipulation
- 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


- Good expertise in robot motion planning, in particular on sampling-based algorithms
- Good knowledge of C/C ++ and proven expertise in developing major projects under Linux (git, cmake,...)
- Familiarity with tools such as ROS
- Excellent level of written and spoken English

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 proposed position is 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.
