Post-doc in real-time neuro-mechanical modelling for exosuit control in factory settingsPosted by: University of Twente
Posted date: 2019-Nov-19
Do you want to develop wearable solutions for preventing musculoskeletal injuries in factory workers performing manual tasks? Are you passionate about developing novel human-machine interfaces for highly ergonomic exosuits? The Neuro-Mechanical Modeling and Engineering Lab (http://bit.ly/NMLab) is seeking for a creative and outstanding post-doctoral fellow to work within the newly funded EU project SOPHIA. You will become part of a growing team of roboticists, biomechanists, as well as partners in machinery and automotive industries.
The H2020 SOPHIA Project seeks to realize adaptable and safe human-robot collaborative environments. Through well-tested sensing methods, modeling, and control algorithms, SOPHIA will see humans and robots working together in factory production settings. In this way, SOPHIA will remove the separation between man and machine to improve factory output. SOPHIA consortium encompasses a large international consortium of academic and industrial partners.Your tasks
You will focus on workers performing locomotion and lifting tasks, who are prone to lower back and leg injuries. These injuries may be prevented if the tasks are executed with optimal body posture and with the aid of wearable assistive robots. Your tasks will include:
