Radu Corcodel
  • Biography

    Radu's PhD focused on workspace analysis and motion synthesis for arbitrary kinematic chains, with particular emphasis on robotic 3D printing and Fusion Deposition Modeling. Between 2007-2011, Radu worked for Siemens VDO (currently Continental, AG) as a Design Architect, where he contributed to the development and production of high-power DC/DC inverters for hybrid vehicles and digital tachographs for commercial vehicles. Currently his research focuses on motion planning and workspace analysis for over-actuated kinematic linkages and collaborative robots.

    • CV1425: Contact implicit manipulation

      The Computer Vision group at MERL is offering and internship opportunity to a highly skilled PhD student to work on robotic manipulation. Candidates should have a solid understanding of contact mechanics, path planning and dexterous manipulation. The intern will deploy control software on physical robots. Strong programming skills are required, including ROS, C++ and Python. Duration and start dates are flexible.
