France has a strong academic tradition and is committed to investing in research and education. Here's what French academics make.
Defrost team (https://team.inria.fr/defrost/) focuses on the modeling, simulation and control of soft deformable robots (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soft_robotics). Our vision is that future robots don’t have to be «rigid» but made of complex deformable structures, composed of stiff and soft regions, close to organic materials that we can find in the nature. Soft robotics opens very attractive perspectives in terms of new applications, reduction of manufacturing costs, robustness, efficiency and security. It could result in great advances in robotics in the next years.
The researcher and software developer within the team are using the open source SOFA simulation framework (https://www.sofa-framework.org) for which we have developed several plugins for soft robots.
Description of the work
Within a team of three developers, the recruited engineer will work on designing new 3D interactive software to design soft-robots. This new software will be on the top of our existing software stack. This stack, relying on SOFA for all numerical simulation aspects and 3D rendering aspects, is developed with the following technologies (c++, cmake, gtest, qt-quick, OpenGL, SOFA).
We expect the engineer to do the following tasks:
Skills and curiosity required in the following domains:
Location: Lille (France)
Duration: 24 montes. The position should be started before December 2018.
