Internship: Nonlinear Robot Control
MERL seeks an intern to conduct research and development of nonlinear control algorithms for mechatronic systems described by differential algebraic equations (DAEs). The research would address problems in the design of nonlinear feedback for robotic systems engaged in assembly applications. The applicant should be enrolled in a graduate program of research at a leading research university, with a strong education in linear and nonlinear control system design and robot dynamics and control, and should have research interests in nonlinear control system design and implementation. Experience with Modelica modeling langauge is an advantage. Starting and ending dates are negotiable.
