Project Description

Are you looking to gain direct industrial experience whilst developing your specialist research area of interest?
Space Applications Services and the University of Strathclyde (UK) are offering a joint academic-industrial PhD. The successful doctorate will be based for 1.5 years at the University of Strathclyde and 2.5years in our main office at Sint-Stevens-Woluwe (Brussels Area). The candidate will mainly report to the PhD supervisors from both organisations.
Space Applications Services is based in the Brussels area that provides products and services for the space sector in many areas ranging from Avionics, Robotics, Human Exploration, Science and Earth Observation.
The research scope of “Multi-Agent Planning” has at its centre the study and development of multi-agent task and path planner that also identifies the appropriate type of perception, mapping and localisation methods for varying tasks, application context and dynamic environment condition. First, the planner will be applied as a part of an offline planning engine within a multi-robot control centre. The outcome will be tested in an online planning context and deployed on robots, empowering heterogeneous teams of robots to organise themselves logically for cooperative perception and task management.
