Intelligent Autonomy of Small Robots
at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 12/23/2018

Opportunity Description

This research develops computational methods that enable robots to perceive and understand their environment; move, see, orient and collaborate in complex missions with limited intervention of human controllers. As the focus is on relatively small, man-packable robots, of particular interest are highly efficient, robust, agile, frugal methods that exhibit excellent properties with limited computational power, storage, and bandwidth. Opportunities exist in the following areas: Robotic autonomy in mixed-initiative operations Collaboration of small robots in communications-limited environment Biologically-inspired methods for autonomy and collaboration Detection and tracking of moving objects from stationary and moving robots Multi-robot object tracking, classification and recognition GPS-denied localization of robots and objects in the scene Human presence and activity detection from shape, face, gait, motion Fusion of information from heterogeneous sensors for robot missions Optimization of complex algorithms for computationally frugal platforms Experimentation and validation methods in robotics Click here for more information

About Us

Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) administers Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research participation programs for civilians such as:

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) allow Postdoctoral Fellows, Journeyman Fellows (undergraduate and graduates students and recent graduates), Senior Researchers, and Summer Faculty engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. Scientists and engineers at ARL help shape and execute the Army's program for meeting the challenge of developing technologies that will support Army forces in meeting future operational needs.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: Aerospace Engineering, Anthropology, Archeology, Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Health Risk Assessment, Environmental Science, Entomology, Epidemiology, Ergonomics, Geology, Health Education Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematics, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Physics, Public Health Economics, Public Health Policy, and more.
