Mobile robots can highly benefit our society. Highly automated vehicles will revolutionize the way we intend transportation. These vehicles can be used to make transportation more efficient and sustainable (for example, with platooning and ride sharing strategies). Vehicle to vehicle (V2V) communications will play a fundamental role in the development of efficient algorithms to coordinate these vehicles in our cities. This type of coordination, however, requires heterogeneous robots (from different owners) to share sensitive information. This information sharing might halt the use of these technologies due to privacy-related concerns.
This project aims to explore distributed privacy-preserving motion-planning strategies to allow different robots to agree on a coordination strategy without revealing sensitive information. The main challenge will be to develop a coordination algorithm for multi-robot systems that is distributed, privacy-preserving, and real-time.
We are looking for a candidate with a PhD degree in systems and control, robotics, computer science, applied mathematics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, or a related subject. The candidate must have strong analytical skills and must be able to work at the intersection of several research domains. Experience with real robot applications is a plus. The applicant should have demonstrated ability to conduct high-quality research according to international standards, as demonstrated by publications in international, high-quality journals. A very good command of the English language is required, as well as excellent communication skills.
