Student Job Leuven – Robot experiments incl. signal processing of robot localization UWB signals
Here you find the details for the student job named "Student Job Leuven – Robot experiments incl. signal processing of robot localization UWB signals" in the company Flanders Make.
|Name:||Student Job Leuven – Robot experiments incl. signal processing of robot localization UWB signals|
You will carry out experiments to capture and process the sensor signals of a moving robot. You will participate in the research of accurate indoor localization.
Contribute in the development of tracking and navigation systems for autonomous robots and vehicles
In a high-tech research project, developing new technologies for companies in the automotive and machine building sector, you will work in a research team and carry out localization experiments with robots. You will calculate the robot’s position, while carrying out various trajectories at various conditions.
The experiments consist of (i) a preparation of the situations (positioning of anchors and disturbances, outline of the robot trajectories), (ii) the actual measurements while driving the robot, (iii) document and automate procedures, (iv) signal processing and analysis of the data (optional). To evaluate the UWB localization accuracy, a “ground truth” localization is captured by cameras fixed on the ceiling that register a pattern on the robot.
Student Job of min. 4 weeks, starting in July or August 2017
