Mapping with mobile robots

The main aim of the project is to develop a robot being able to add semantic 3D information to an indoor map. The developed would be based on existing open-source modules in cooperation with the Braintronix company within a European project.

Currently the company is producing the VIPER mobile platorm for research and development purposes. Within this project, the robot would be augmented with additional 3D sensors in order to facilitate the semantic mapping. 

This extension is important in order to enhance the perception capabilities of the robot. Thus the partners involved in this project will mutually take benefit from the cooperation on the topic of perception and planning for mobile robots. 

The interested candidates should:

  • be motivated to learn new technologies
  • hold basic C++ knowledge
  • be able to work in a multi-disciplinary team

The topics are related to:

  • SLAM
  • Dynamic obstacle detection
  • Real life experiment design
