    • CD1382: Motion Planning in Dynamic Environment

      MERL is seeking a highly skilled and self-motivated intern to work on motion planning of nonholonomic system in dynamic environments. The ideal candidate should have solid backgrounds in task allocation, scheduling, and motion planning under dynamic and stochastic environment. Excellent coding skill and strong publication records are necessary. Senior Ph.D. students in control, computer science, or related areas are encouraged to apply. Start date for this internship is flexible, and the expected duration is about 3 months.

    • CD1383: Collaborative Estimation for Robotic Manipulators

      MERL is seeking a highly skilled and self-motivated intern to conduct research on condition monitoring for robotic manipulators. The ideal candidate should have solid backgrounds in robotic manipulators, stochastic estimation methods for dynamical systems, and collaborative strategies over multi-agents. Experience of applying machine learning to dynamical systems is a strong plus. Excellent coding skill and strong publication records are necessary. Senior Ph.D. students in control, robotics, or related areas are encouraged to apply. Start date for this internship is flexible, and the expected duration is about 3 months.
