The Intelligent Autonomous Systems Lab (http://ualr.edu/cxye/laboratory.htm) of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock has multiple Ph.D. student openings for Fall 2016. The successful candidates will: (1) develop vision based navigation methods for a robotic navigation aid and a Wearable Object Manipulation Aid (W-ROMA) for the visually impaired; (2) develop vision-based human motion detection and analysis methods for a Quadrupedal Human-Assistive Robotic Platform (Q-HARP); (3) prototype the W-ROMA; and (4) Test the motion detection and analysis methods for the Q-HARP prototype. The projects will use 3D time-of-flight cameras and RGB-D cameras for perception. The research topics include:|
- 6 DOF Simultaneous Localization of Mapping
- Obstacle/Object Detection
- Human Lower Limbs Detection, Motion Analysis and walking pattern recognition
- Human-Robot Interaction
- Electroactive Polymer Actuator Design and Characterization
General guideline of admission to graduate study is referred to http://ualr.edu/enss/. The lab currently hosts research projects funded by the National Institutes of Health, NASA, and Arkansas Research Alliance.
