COgNiTive Architecture for Collaborative Technologies Research Line at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Erzelli, Genoa, is seeking to appoint one postdoctoral position focusing on the assessment of engagement with safety and ergonomic work, the design of proactive measures and counter measures for safety preservation, the optimization of ergonomics, design of software infrastructure for social interaction with the mobile and dexterous co-robot.
The first goal of the research is redesigning cognition for safety and ergonomics for human-robot collaboration in manufacturing and construction unstructured workspaces. The second goal is to support the design of new multipurpose robotics for collaboration (co-robots) in manufacturing processes.
The selected candidate will work with a multidisciplinary consortium of participants to the recently awarded project VOJEXT, Value Of Joint EXperimentation in digital Technologies for manufacturing and construction (H2020 DT-ICT-03-2020, n. 952197). The candidate will work with different robotic platforms for human-robot interaction in manufacturing and construction sites selected together with the consortium and with different sensorial setups specifically designed to assess ergonomics and safety associated with the workers in unstructured manufacturing and constructions settings.

The research for this postdoctoral position will involve:

  *   Sensing of human working conditions for social, safe and ergonomic based on human-robot collaboration in unstructured manufacturing and construction settings
  *   Design of control systems for mobile robots for Safety in human-robot collaboration
  *   Development of a system improving human-robot social collaboration in unstructured manufacturing and construction sites
  *   Development of a system improving ergonomics and mitigating health and safety risks in open and unstructured environments
