This project aims to develop a novel six-legged walking robot with features of high stability, mobility, manipulation, and precise-machining capabilities via optimised design of the leg mechanism and leg layout platform.
The research results of this project can benefit the maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) industries by improving the robotic and autonomous capabilities during regular In-situ repair and maintenance in challenging environments.
You must have experience in robotics and/or practical experience with ROS environment. You should demonstrate skills in writing scientific reports and have a solid background in mathematics and computer programming (for example, Python, C++, Matlab).
You should be a highly motivated individual and possess a strong sense of curiosity. The ability to study independently, think critically and collaborate with others is essential.
You will have or will receive an undergraduate degree classified at 1st class or 2:1 (honours) in engineering, maths or physics. A postgraduate masters degree may be an advantage. Where appropriate, applicants must have English language proficiency to an overall score of IELTS 6.5 or equivalent.
