Virtual and Augmented Reality for Robot Programming

Research assistant

Research focus: Automation and Robotics, Machine Learning, Service Robotics and Mobile Manipulation, Software Engineering
Courses of study: Electrical Engineering, Informatics

Job Description

Robotic systems are complex and require usually experienced workers to program them. For this reason the current research aims to make them easier to plan, program and test. Virtual and Augmented reality tools allow the user to interact with virtual objects and they can be used to program and test the robot motion using a virtual model of it. Once the desired robot path is defined in the virtual scenario, it can also be evaluated in order to be then executed on the real robot.

Your Responsibilities

We are working to make an easier and more intuitive way to program robots with the help of Virtual and Augmented Reality tools. Your task is to work on an immersive virtual environment in which it is possible to safely define the robot motion that can be then reproduced on the real hardware.
