Job Description

Bin packing refers to the task of placing particular objects in bounded and possibly cluttered spaces like bins or shelves so as to optimize some desirable objective (e.g. space efficiency, time efficiency). Since the objects poses, sizes, and physical properties can only be inferred with some level of accuracy or certainty from sensory input like cameras and force sensors, the task cannot be fully automated, and learning-based methods can greatly assist.

Expected outcomes:

●       A fully implemented algorithm demoed on the robot

●       Academic publication


●       Learning towards a PhD or MsC in CS/EE/ME or other equivalents degree

●       Knowledge in Machine Learning, and at least one of the following: Reinforcement Learning, Computer Vision

●       Strong competency in Python and Deep Learning frameworks

●       Good SW engineering capabilities

●       Good academic records

Additional Information

Further requirements:

●       Knowledge in motion planning, control.

●       Knowledge in ROS (Robot Operation System).

General skills:

●       Initiative, highly motivated and motivating character for the team and partners

●       Ability and willingness to define a research agenda to solve real-world problems

●       Self-confident and responsible team player with excellent communication skills

●       Like to work in an interdisciplinary as well as international team

Who is the target candidate?

●       One who would like to gain some experience in the intersection of Robotics, AI and RL
