** 12-months Software Research Engineer Position for Service Robotics **
Context: The RoboShop Project
The RoboShop project aims at providing the foundations for using robots as media in the customer relationship management (CRM). This work should provide a hardware and software platform to build experiments about robotic usage scenario related to shopping. This platform must be complete and used in a public demonstration at the end of the project by october 2013.
The work to be carried out aims at providing a robust infrastructure (hardware and soft- ware) for robotic experiments related to services. The hardware part will mainly rely on an existing robotic platform which already integrate the most common sensors and actuators (Laser, Vision, infra-red, ...). The contribution will consist in integrating some new sensors. The main effort is therefore on the software part. Technologically it will imply to work with ROS (Robot Operating System) [ros08] and Pharo [pha08] as well as some robotic tools and algorithms: simulators (Gazebo, Morse), SLAM, ...
