  • DA1092: Intern in Robotics and Grippers

    • The Data Analytics group is seeking an intern to work on the problems of multi-degree-of-freedom robot grippers for poorly defined or dynamically changing tasks. This task extends from the mathematics of gripping, to actual fabrication and testing of new robot gripper designs in an RL (reinforcement learning) robot control environment. Gripper technology is intentionally not limited to commercially available hardware; designs particularly advantageous to RL control are especially welcomed.
