A funded Ph.D. student position is available in the Flora-Robotica E.U. project due to start the 1st of April 2015. The overall aim of the project is to explore the potential of integrating plants and robots. E.g. can a robot exploit the phototaxis of a plant to deploy its solar panels effectively, can a robot support the plant to facilitate growth towards certain goals, can flora-robotica hybrids facilitate a strong interaction with a human user to create aesthetic as well as useful architecture.
The successful candidate will complement an international, interdisciplinary team of researchers with expertise in bio-inspired robotics, plant physiology, architecture, multi-robot coordination, modular robotics, embodied A.I., mechatronics, and evolutionary algorithms. The successful candidate will support the project by developing middleware for integrating the sensors and actuators of the system for a Linux capable platform (e.g BeagleBone Black). From this technical starting point the candidate is expected to explore fundamental scientific question related to creating an internet-connected social garden of flora-roboticas.
The successful candidate is expected to hold an education in computer science or similar and the preferred candidate has experience with:
