Student project (Hiwi, Bachelor, Master): Development of a flywheel-driven testbed for non-linear learning control

The abilities to self-erect and maneuver around moving obstacles are crucial steps towards the deployment of fully autonomous mobile robots acting in uncertain environments. With this perspective in mind, learning algorithms for robotics must be tested on real-world systems, as hardware raises a multitude of additional challenges. In the field of machine learning and control, the preferred testbed for algorithms are either rotorcrafts (quadrocopters) or stationary systems (robot arms, pendulu... More

HiWi/student position: Intelligent control of cyber-physical systems

cyvy 2018-11-01 Stuttgart or Tübingen Student

HiWi / part-time student assistant / internship position to support research in machine learning, control, and networked systems.

The next generation of intelligent systems will tightly integrate the physical world with computing and communication systems. These cyber-physical systems (CPSs) will exceed present day systems in complexity, performance, and their level of autonomy. Applications include, but are not limited to, multi-robot systems, autonomous driving, or quadcopter swarms flying in formation. Controlling these systems poses various challenges. The examples mentioned above represent complex systems with m... More

Master Theses Projects in Vision-based Autonomous Systems

cyvy 2018-11-01 Tübingen Master

The Embodied Vision group investigates novel approaches to vision-based perception and learning for intelligent systems that are closely coupled with control and planning. We are looking for talented students who are pursuing a Master of Science degree in computer science, electrical or control engineering, applied mathematics or physics and are eager to pursue their Master thesis on a research topic in our group.

Intelligent systems that perform complex tasks in everyday environments require the ability to perceive their environment and the objects with which they interact. Besides tactile or proprioceptive sensing, vision is an important sensing modality for such systems that provides rich sensory information. The Embodied Vision group (https://ev.is.mpg.de) at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) in Tübingen investigates novel approaches to vision-based perception and learning f...

Master Thesis Projects on Learning Control

cyvy 2018-11-01 Master

Machine learning for advanced control of autonomous systems. We are continuously looking for outstanding students who are eager to do their Master thesis on a challenging project at the intersection of Machine Learning and Control.

The ability to learn will be a key requirement for future robotic and other intelligent systems, which are envisioned to act autonomously in complex and changing environments. A core research area in the Intelligent Control Systems Group (ICS) is learning for control. We combine techniques from machine learning, control theory, and optimization to develop intelligent control algorithms for the next generation of autonomous systems. In particular, we focus on the special requirements that real... More

Predictive Triggering for Multi-agent Systems

cyvy 2018-11-01 Stuttgart/Tübingen Student

Master thesis project on intelligent resource allocation in distributed control of multi-agent systems

Multi-agent systems are composed of multiple intelligent agents acting and inter-acting autonomously in a complex environment. Applications include, but are not limited to, multi-robot systems, autonomous driving or quadcopter swarms flying in formation. In all three settings, it would be beneficial for the agents to communicate. In the case of multiple robots working together and the swarm of quadcopters, sharing information is important for coordination. In autonomous driving, communication... More
