We are looking for a highly motivated and ambitious postdoctoral researcher to conduct studies on dynamic modelling of humans during physical interactions with collaborative robots and the external world. The project will take advantage of the powerful robotics tools (e.g., humanoids theory) for the analysis and synthesis of human movements and interactions.
This theme will aim to create advanced human-robot interaction control schemes for productive and ergonomic role-allocation and task coordination in hybrid manufacturing environments. This collaborative control scheme will enable real-time adaptation of collaborative robots to human dynamic factors and intentions. The focus will be on the development of real-time human dynamic models to track dynamic states and human ergonomic factors. Consequently, robot responses will be formed to assist the worker to perform the intended tasks in configurations in which the risks of injuries are minimum.
