Title: PostDoc position: 3D Site Mapping and LocalizationPosted: April 4, 2013
Company/Institution: European Commission, Joint Research Centre
Location: Ispra, Italy
Department: Institute Transuranium Elements/Nuclear Security Unit

Description: The candidate will work on the development of new algorithms and systems for human navigation in indoor controlled environment (such as industrial plants). The software will be employed by Inspectors in performing a complementary access inspection. The candidate will employ data acquired using real time RGB-D sensors, dead reckoning odometry sensors and 3D laser scanners. The project includes the development of algorithms for real time 3D localization in known environments and 2D mapping of unknown environments. Moreover the project aims at exploiting the known 3D environment to bootstrap the real time navigation system and to solve the kidnapped robot problem. Results are expected to be of high scientific quality and publishable on high level conferences and journals. Qualifications: The ideal candidate should have a Ph.D. or a minimum of 5 years of research experience after the first degree giving access to doctoral studies in Computer Vision or similar with proven experience on i) 3D data acquisition, processing and analysis; ii) Software development using C/C++, OpenGL and OpenCV.
